How do I request teacher recommendations?

We do not use the teacher recommendation option in Naviance/Family Connections.  Please speak directly to your teachers and school counselor about writing letters of recommendations.  You should also provide your teachers and school counselor a copy of your resume when they have agreed to write your letter.

What about my guidance counselor recommendation?

You will need to bring your resume to your counselor in order to have a letter of recommendation written.

What about a recommendation from a coach or advisor?

If you are using Common App, click My Colleges, then Recommenders. If your school allows an outside recommendation, there will be a place to enter in their contact information. They will submit it to the college electronically. If you are NOT using Common App, have your coach/advisor upload letter to Naviance.
