Request a Letter of Recommendation

As an Inspire Scholars student, you may need to request a recommendation letter for a variety of reasons. Please click on the link below to submit a request and answer each question in its entirety. The more you write, the more information the counselor can provide in the recommendation letter. Please keep in mind, we can only provide recommendation letters regarding academics and educational goals. If the letter requires verification of specific qualifications that we have not observed, we can only discuss the information that we have witnessed. Please allow 3-7 business days for the counselor to complete the letter of recommendation for you.​
