    If you need a rec letter, you must follow these steps in this order:

    1. Ask your teacher if he or she would be willing to write you a letter of recommendation. You need to give your teacher 3 weeks to write your letter of recommendation, so request at least 3 weeks before due date.
    2. Once your teacher agrees to write a letter, then go to Naviance > Colleges > Home. This must be done through Naviance so your letters may be sent electronically.
    3. "Apply to Colleges" > "Letters of Recommendation"
    4. Click on "Add Request" > Select a teacher
    5. Check the box to send ALL COLLEGES
    6. For part 3, add any information and thank the teacher. 
    7. Complete a Teacher Recommendation Form. Complete a separate form for each teacher. E-mail or hand-deliver your completed questionnaire to the teacher(s) writing your letter of recommendation.
    8. Don't forget to write a thank you note after the letter is complete.
