Letters of Recommendation

The America PlayGraduate schools, summer internships, summer stock companies, scholarship programs, and prospective employers often request letters of recommendation from former instructors. Students should follow the guidelines, below, as a matter of courtesy when requesting letters of recommendation:

1. Students should select professors with whom they have studied for more than one course, have worked on at least one production, and/or have conducted independent work, so that a letter of recommendation may be more authoritative.

2. Students should provide a written and signed request for a letter of recommendation at least one month prior to the date on which the recommendation is due, and include their current curriculum vitae (resumé), a list of the addresses and persons to whom the letter is to be sent, all forms properly signed and completed, and deadlines for submissions. A signed Recommendation Release Form (HTML) must accompany each request.
