Students who need a letter of recommendation from the counselor should give detailed information as to what is required for the letter of recommendation and where to send the letter once it is completed. Requests for letters of recommendation must come from the student. Please allow 2 weeks for letters of recommendation. During busy times of the year in the counseling office, turnaround time might be 2-3 weeks. Failure to provide adequate information will delay the process considerably.
