LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION:
Not all colleges and universities require letters of recommendation. However, if you need a letter of recommendation, you will first need to request that letter from teachers/staff by a face-to-face conversation. After you have made that 1st initial contact with your recommender, you need to E-MAIL a friendly reminder to each teacher you are requesting a letter of recommendation and be sure to copy your counselor. The email should include the name of the schools you plan to use this letter of recommendation and the deadline it needs to be completed. Teachers and Staff members will upload their recommendation letters into Naviance Student, which will allow the counselors to send all supporting materials (letters of recommendation, transcripts, and secondary school reports) to the colleges you are applying to in a complete and organized package for the college to review.
