We do not accept paper versions of letters of recommendation; we only accept electronic versions.

       As part of your application, you must provide the names and email addresses of three individuals willing to supply letters of professional reference on your behalf. These individuals will then be contacted directly by the system with instructions for submitting their reference letters electronically.

In compiling your professional references listing, consider former professors or employers most familiar with your technical abilities. We particularly value letters that assess an applicant's preparation and ability to complete a research project. If you have a master's degree, please include your major professor as a reference.
