Master of Education Letters of Recommendation

Instructions to Applicant

Two letters of academic or professional recommendation are required as part of the application packet. The letters should be written by two persons who know you professionally or in an academic setting. We suggest that one of the professional references be from a current or former employer and one from a former teacher or professor, if possible, who can speak to your potential to serve as an educational leader. Ask each person to place his/her letter in a sealed envelope, sign his/her name over the seal and then return the envelope to YOU. We ask that you then submit these letters with your application package. The package is not complete without these two letters of recommendation. Please give this form to the recommender who should attach it to the letter of recommendation.
