Letters of Recommendation

Dunhuang Silk Road

All students must obtain academic letters of recommendation from two faculty, staff, and/or coaches who know the student's abilities and history. These letters are requested and submitted electronically through the online system and will be kept on file.

Because recommenders have many competing responsibilities, we urge you to request letters early. It is ideal to ask for recommendations in a face-to-face conversation prior to the electronic request if at all possible; a personal email or phone call is also acceptable.
