Recommendation Dashboard for Teachers

Students can send teacher recommendation requests within their BridgeU account so you may be asked by one or more of your students to write a letter of recommendation. You will receive teacher recommendation requests via email to complete and submit to the student’s advisor. The advisor will then be able to submit the recommendation on behalf of the student in support of their university application. As a teacher, read below to learn how your recommender dashboard works and how you can track recommendation requests and their progress. 

Please note that you can receive and complete requests from students in multiple different schools. 


Account set up

If you have not created a recommender account before, you can create one by following the steps in the recommendation request email. Click the green Sign up to access the request list button in your email to begin. Within your sign-up, you will be asked to:

  • Create a password and activate your account. 
  • Confirm your profile details such as name, job title and telephone number 

If you have already created an account, you can click the Log in to access the request list button to view your recommender dashboard or you can log into your account at any time using your account credentials: or for China users:

Click Fill out form when you are ready to complete the recommendation. Complete the required details on each page, and click on the section titles on the right-hand side of the form when you are ready to move on to the next section. It is important to ensure that you complete all relevant fields in each section. 

You can also Save the form and return to complete it at a later time if you wish. 

Your profile details will be prepopulated for you in each Teacher Recommendation form to save you time on each request. Click on your name on the top right-hand side of the page in your account to view and/or edit applicable Profile details if necessary for future forms. Profile detail changes will not be updated on previously submitted forms that have been actioned by the advisor.

If you upload a letter of recommendation in the Written Evaluation section, please ensure that the file is a PDF, less than 2MB in size and is NOT password encrypted. 


After submission

You can resubmit the teacher recommendation form with changes, as long as the student’s advisor has not already actioned your submission. You can check if your submitted form is editable for resubmission in the Action column: the green View/Edit form button will be available. 

If your submitted teacher recommendation has a white View Submission button, you cannot make any further changes to your form for resubmission. In this instance, we recommend that you contact the student’s advisor to let them know of the changes you wish to make.
