Helpful Hints for Recommendation Forms

1. Please inform the person writing your recommendation that if they choose to compose a response in the online form they must save it prior to the passing of 30 minutes; in other words, that page will time out after 30 minutes. Recommend that they compose a response in a Word document and then cut and paste it into the online form.

2. If the person you send a recommendation invitation to reports that they have not received the e-mail, ask them to check their spam folder. If they still have not received the e-mail,

  • check the spelling of the e-mail address and
  • resend the invitation--sending multiple invitations does not affect your application.

3. Further hints if the recommender encounters problems:

  • clear browser's cache and cookies if you cannot submit the recommendation and then restart the Web browser
  • recommender may need to update to the latest version of their browser
  • recommendation forms cannot be filled out on mobile devices such as iPad or Android devices
