  • Requests must be sent at least two weeks, but preferably one month or more, before the deadline.

  • The course(s) you took with me, or other capacity in which I can write a letter on your behalf.

  • Updated CV.

  • Unofficial transcript.

  • Overview of the main details of the relevant program/position to which you are applying. This should include the deadline and how the letter should be submitted (e.g., mail, email, website).

  • Your personal statement/cover letter for the application, or a brief summary of your interests, experiences, and/or skills that make you well-suited for the program/position.
