  • One letter of recommendation preferably from a professor or instructor. Complete the upper portion only of the Faculty Report and as a courtesy, please provide a pre-addressed, stamped envelope for the person who is recommending you. Additional recommendations may also be submitted.
  • A Statement of Good Standing Form must be completed by the Dean of Students Office at your current institution.
