Guidelines for the Letter of Support and Reference Rating Questionnaire

A person who provides references for the applicant (i.e., a reference) must complete the Reference Rating Form and write a letter of support. The list of individuals who serve as references should include a major academic advisor (e.g., a thesis advisor), a long-term instructor (e.g., someone from whom the student has taken multiple classes), and a supervisor (e.g., a clinical supervisor or job supervisor). 

Applicants will submit the names and contact information for each reference within the Application for Admission and applicants must waive the right to review the letter of recommendation and responses to the Reference Rating Questionnaire questions. Each reference will receive an automatic email from the UAA Office of Admissions with instructions on how to submit the letter of reference and complete the electronic reference rating questionnaire.
