Request a recommendation letter

Step 1: From the menu, click on Recommendations

Step 2: Click on My Progress 

Step 3: Click on New recommendation

Step 4: Enter the recommender name and email address

Step 5: Customise the recommendation request message.

Step 6: Click Save to save the recommendation request to preview and send later. The request will be marked in orange and show pending in status. You will still be able to edit any details when the status is pending. If you prefer to send the request immediately, make sure to check the Send now box before clicking Save.

Note: Please double check with your counsellor about the correct recommender name and email address to make sure the spelling is correct. Once the request is sent, you won't be able to edit their names and email address.


When the teacher has completed the Letter of Recommendation, the status will show as Complete. If you need to resend a request, you can click "Resend Email":


Note: BridgeU does not automatically send out completed letters of recommendation to universities. This is because universities have different limits on how many they will accept, for example if you have 2 different letters on the system and the university only accepts 1, then a decision needs to be made on which to send. You counselor selects which letters goes to which university, so please contact them with any preferences you have after you request the recommendations and if you add any new universities to your application list.

Here is a list of the min (required) /max (optional) teacher recommendations each university accepts.
