Two Letters of Recommendation:
Applicants are required to submit two letters of recommendation from individuals best qualified to attest to your capacity for graduate work. We prefer that at least one of your references be an academic reference from a former instructor or faculty, though we realize that there are situations where this may not always be possible.
It is important that both letters of recommendation by individuals who know you well academically.

Former faculty members most commonly write letters of recommendation; however, other professionals who have supervised you in a job or internship aligned with the graduate program you are pursuing are appropriate sources. Letters written by peer work colleagues, family friends, community or political figures are not considered appropriate sources for letters of recommendation.
Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
