Faculty Recommendation Letters

Online Recommendation Letters

Thank you for supporting Tech students by taking the time to write stellar letters of recommendation. Whether the letters are for jobs, graduate schools, or scholarship applications, the support of faculty and staff is essential to students' success.

Because competition for scholarship programs are so intense, recommendation letters are crucially important in the screening and selection processes. Letters often tip the balance. If, upon receiving a request from a student to serve as a reference, you believe that you do not know the student well enough to write a detailed letter, or if you genuinely prefer not to take the time to write a detailed letter, please decline the request but feel free to help the student think about alternative referees. We appreciate the challenge of composing a credible, helpful recommendation letter. Because much is at stake for the student, we encourage your acceptance of the invitation if, as we believe, you're a qualified referee.

TTU Faculty can submit scholarship recommendation letters online for current Red Raiders.
