Guidelines for College Recommendation Letters

Writing a college recommendation letter is no small undertaking.  In order for me to provide the admissions office of a college with an accurate, positive description of your academic performance, I will need the following:

Your name __________________________________________
Your Social Security Number ___________________________

1. Print this form and attach it to a large manila envelope.

2. Write your name and SS# on the line above.

3. Enclose in the envelope the items listed below. If anything is missing your packet will be returned. I will not address or stamp envelopes to the colleges.

___ The teacher recommendation form(s) for the college(s) to which you are applying. Be sure you have entered all information regarding yourself.

___ A stamped, self-sealing envelope addressed to the admissions office of your college(s). This envelope should be typed and have Iona Prep's return address on it:   255 Wilmot Road, New Rochelle, NY 10804

___ A resumé of honors you have received and a detailed description of activities you have participated in, both in and out of school. Include teams, clubs, service work, part-time work, etc.

___ A few sentences in which you identify your positive, memorable features while you were in my class.

*     It is important for students to understand that a teacher is not mandated to write a letter of recommendation.  The material on this page is only for students for whom I have agreed to write a letter of recommendation.  Please do not approach me with a packet without first asking me to write you a letter.
