Letters of Recommendation
Recommenders must submit their letter electronically through our online application system, please follow these instructions:
Click on "Recommendations" then,
Click on "Recommendation Provider List" input the name and contact information, including a valid email address of each recommender.
Once the recommender's information is saved, an email will be sent to them with a link, a personal access code and detailed instructions on how to submit the letter online (Note: The link automatically expires 7 days after it was generated, if the recommender attempts to use the link after 7 days, they will not be able to access the system. You will have to re-send them the notification in order for them to successfully access the system.) If you would like to send a reminder, click on the "resend" button next to their name. This will automatically generate a reminder email.
- Once the recommender submits his/her letter, it will become a part of your application. **PLEASE NOTE: Reference letters DO NOT have to be submitted prior to submission of the online application.
- You may view the status of your online recommendations each time you log into your application account.
- If a recommender encounters any issues with the submission process, he/she should contact the online application system Technical Support. Technical Support may be contacted by clicking on the "Need Help" link.

Applicants are not permitted to inspect letters of recommendation in their Hunter files. Admitted and enrolled students can make an appointment with the Graduate Admissions Office to view their letters of recommendation unless the right of access has been waived on the form.
