Letters of Recommendation

If you are applying to college, a summer program, or scholarship, you may be asked to provide one or more Letters of Recommendation.  There are a few things to consider before asking for a Letter of Recommendation:    

  • For college applications, please check each college admissions website to verify that a Letter of Recommendation is required or recommended, how many, who should write the letter, and the deadline 
  • California State Universities (CSUs) and University of California (UCs) DO NOT require a Letter of Recommendation (If a supplemental application is required for your intended major at one of these universities, you may be asked for a Letter of Recommendation

If you do need a Letter of Recommendation, consider the following process:

  • Ask your teacher and/or counselor personally if they are able to write you a Letter of Recommendation
  • Keep in mind that you should ask them at least two weeks in advance, if not earlier, as they receive many requests throughout the school year
  • Complete the Personal Data Form in Naviance (Located in the About Me tab) and/or the Counselor Recommendation Form (email your counselor for a link to their Google form) at least two weeks in advance.  In some cases, you may provide a resume. 
  • If the letter is for college admissions, submit a Letter of Recommendation request for your teacher and/or counselor in Naviance (Located in the Colleges tab)  
  • Letters of Recommendation for college admissions will be submitted through Naviance.  You must sign the FERPA waiver in Naviance before a teacher and/or counselor can upload their Letter of Recommendation!
