Recommenders

Thank you for helping students navigate through the process of applying to and paying for college! We value the recommendations you share about your students. The New Application for High School Students and the New Application for College Students will be available in December.

All recommenders should receive an email recommendation request from the applicant, with a link to the student’s personalized recommendation form. Please complete the form and upload any appropriate documents by May 3rd, 2018. (If your high school student is using the early response deadline of April 3rd, all recommendations need to be received by April 5th.) Below is information about the recommendations we require for new applicants and helpful links for all recommenders.

Are you a partner organization helping a student with theĀ college search process?

Your applicant should request that you fill out a Recommender Form. It can be the required Recommender Form (one Recommender Form is required for each application), or it can be in addition to the required one.
