You will be required to submit reference letters as part of your application.
There are four types of recommendation: Pastoral, Academic, Professional and Personal.
We require two recommendation letters.
The first recommendation letter should be completed by a minister. The second recommendation letter can be submitted by a professor or a colleague, or a friend — people who will vouch for you, your character, and abilities. Family members may not serve as recommenders.
You must provide the names and contact information for reference as part of the application form. Your references will receive an electronic reference form to submit directly to our Admissions Team.
We recommend that your chosen reference provider is made aware of this reference request before you complete the information on the online application.
To a recommender:
Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, enrolled students have access to educational records concerning them. Students are also permitted to waive (refrain from using) the rights of access to their letters of reference. If they waive this right, it means that the students agree that the students will not be allowed access to this particular item (the letter of reference) in their record.

Frequently Asked Questions
If your recommender is having trouble with the online reference form, or simply does not want to do the online version, we can send you a PDF version of the reference either via email. Once you receive the PDF reference form, you will need to download and print the form, then send this form to your recommender. Once your recommender completes the form, he/she can either e-mail it as a scanned attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
