MAEd and Teacher Licensure - Recommendation Form

To the Applicant:

The Master of Arts in Education Program requires two recommendations.  The BW Admission Office provides this online recommendation form, and also a paper version if preferred. The recommendations should be completed by individuals you have asked to provide either a professional or personal reference for you -- a principal, supervisor, co-worker, college professor, or someone who is familiar with your goals and abilities. It should not be completed by any member of your immediate family.

Once received by the Admission Office, these recommendations are confidential and will not be shared with you, the applicant.  The person serving as your reference will need to share those comments with you directly. 

Your application may not be fully considered until all recommendations are submitted, so encourage the individuals you select to complete this form promptly.
