  • Recommendation Letter Requests

    Students needing recommendation letters from their counselor or teachers need to follow the timetable below:

    APPLICATION DEADLINE:

    DEADLINE TO REQUEST FROM COUNSELOR/TEACHER:

    October 1

    September 15

    November 1

    October 10

    November 15

    October 25

    December 1

    November 1

    December 15

    November 15

    January 1

    November 28

    January 15

    December 1 (*Due to winter break)

    February 1

    January 10

    February 15

    January 15

    This schedule allows for vacations/breaks as the counselors and teachers are not in their offices during school breaks. (For example if your application deadline is Jan. 1st you need to have your request for a recommendation to the counselor at the end of November due to the two weeks of winter break which are not considered work time).           

    If you are late turning in your recommendation request your counselor/teacher will not have as much time to devote to your letter resulting in possibly a less comprehensive letter.  In the case of extreme lateness on the student’s part, the application deadline may be missed altogether.
