A report from one of your core academic instructors (English, science, social science, math, or foreign language) is required. This should be someone who knows your classroom performance well. Complete Part I of the Academic Recommendation (PDF) and give it to your reference person. Ask that he/she send the form directly to the Admissions office or return the form to you in a signed and sealed envelope, which you will submit, unopened, with the other supporting documents for your application. Your academic recommendation must come from a college professor or advisor. However, current college freshmen may submit a recommendation from either a college professor or high school core-subject teacher.
Homeschool students should refer to the academic recommendation form for further instructions.
A recommendation from a pastor, youth pastor, former pastor, Bible study leader, Christian school teacher, church official, or other mature Christian is required. This person should be a mature Christian adult who knows you well and has had the opportunity to observe your spiritual life. This person should not be a relative. Complete Part I of the Pastoral Recommendation (PDF) and give it to your reference person, requesting that he/she send the form directly to the Admissions Office or return it to you in a signed and sealed envelope, which you will submit, unopened, with the other supporting documents for your application.
