Letters of Recommendation

Three letters of recommendation are required in support of your applications for admission. At least two of these letters should be requested from professors in your major subject.  If you are currently enrolled in or have completed a graduate degree, a letter of recommendation is required from your program or thesis advisor in that program. Applicants are not permitted to inspect letters of recommendation in their UCR application files. If you are admitted to UCR and enroll, you may then have access to your letters of recommendation unless you previously waived the right of access on the form.

Applicants must enter their three recommenders profile and contact information directly into the electronic application.  Recommenders will be notified by email and provided instructions about how to submit a letter online.  All letters of recommendation must be received electronically so they are attached to the appropriate applicant file for review. Hard copy Letters of Recommendation are not accepted.
