If you registered previously, you may log-in with your existing User ID and password.

3. Ask two people to complete recommendations for you. One recommendation must be from a teacher or guidance counselor, and the other from
a member of the community (e.g., a family friend, neighbor, mentor, minister/priest, or someone you worked with on a community activity).

  • Fill in your name and e-mail address on the recommendation form. (We will use your e-mail address to notify you when we receive your recommendations.) The recommendation form is a fillable PDF, so you should fill in your name and e-mail address electronically.
  • Provide each of your recommenders a copy of the recommendation form with your name and e-mail address filled in. Please give your recommenders the electronic version of the form (fillable PDF), so they can complete the form electronically.
