If you are applying to Universities via the Common App, it is very likely you will require at least one Teacher Recommendation letter.
- These letters are requested via “Recommendations” on BridgeU. When you submit a request, your teacher will receive an invitation via email
- They then submit their Letter of Recommendation for your Counselor to submit to the relevant University or College.
When you have multiple applications and/or multiple Letters of Recommendation, it's important to communicate your preferences to your Counselor regarding which letter should be sent to each University on your application list. This will help ensure that the right recommendations are sent to the appropriate institutions.
Use our Common App Teacher Recommendation assignment spreadsheet to indicate your preferences and share it with your BridgeU advisor or guidance counselor.
Use our spreadsheet template or create your own like this example:
|University||Mrs Ahmed - French||Ms Kupfuwa - Maths||Mrs Brown - English|
