Letter of Recommendation Instructions

We encourage all applicants to use the online process outlined below once you've submitted your application and received your UNH ID. If your department requires additional statements of support, or you are providing recommendations that can't be submitted online, such as placement credentials, please have the provider email them to grad.school@unh.edu or mail them directly to the Graduate School.

Online Request Instructions for Letters of Recommendation

  1. After you've submitted your online application and received your UNH ID, submit the Letter of Recommendation Request Form. Please verify ALL email addresses entered before submitting the form. Once you submit the form, we'll email you a confirmation and an automated email will be sent to each referee you listed with instructions on how to submit their letter. In rare cases the email may go to their SPAM folder so you may want to alert them to not block email from @unh.edu.
  2. If you need to make any changes to what you've submitted, contact our office at grad.school@unh.edu and if possible please include a copy of your original confirmation email.
  3. We recommend you submit all your referees at one time but you can return to the form later to submit additional referees. If you wish to delete an existing referee, please contact our office, notify the referee and we will update the system (so the referee doesn't continue receiving automated reminders).
  4. When your referee submits their letter of recommendation online, you'll receive an email informing you that it's been received. You can also check your status online. Note: The Graduate School will send regular reminders to your referees until they've submitted their letter of recommendation, so do not submit multiple requests for the same referee.
