Recommender Instructions

Thank you for completing an online recommendation on the behalf of an applicant to the Pardee School of Global Studies. Admission into our programs is competitive and your evaluation of the applicant is important to us.

Please complete the recommendation questionnaire and upload a document describing in detail the applicant’s abilities. We ask that you evaluate the major strengths and weaknesses of the applicant as a potential graduate student. Please remember that letters of recommendation should be in English.

Under the 1974 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the applicant will have access to this recommendation unless he/she has waived that right. Please be advised that under certain circumstances, this evaluation may be reviewed by someone other than a member of the admissions committee of the department to which the student has applied.

To review whether a student has waived their right to access the evaluation, you can select “preview evaluation” at the bottom of the Evaluator Form and see the student’s response to the question.

After completing the form and uploading your letter, you may preview your evaluation by clicking “Save Evaluation” and then “Preview Evaluation” at the bottom of the page. When you are ready to submit, please click “Submit Evaluation.”
