Documents to be submitted by RECOMMENDERS by April 26, 2021:

  • Two Letters of Recommendation

Your application will be complete once we also receive two Letters of Recommendation from your recommenders. In addition to the Recommendation Letter, recommenders will be also asked to complete an evaluation form. The student evaluation form includes a rating section and has guidelines on what recommenders should include in their Letters. The Letters of Recommendation are confidential and requested directly. Therefore you will be asked to provide contact details of your Recommenders who will receive an email notification with the link to the page where they can fill out the evaluation form and upload their letter of recommendation in support of your application.

Before or after submission of your application, you will be able to view your Recommenders list. You will be able to send a reminder if they have not submitted the letter of recommendation. Once they submit their letter of recommendation, you will receive an email notification. If you have not received such a confirmation email, please reach out to your Recommenders to remind them to access the link they received and submit it by the application deadline of April 26, 2021. IIE must receive Recommendations Letters from the recommenders by the deadline. It is your responsibility to follow up with your Recommenders and ensure they submit the letters and complete the form on time.

Your application package will be complete once you submit your full application package online and your Recommenders submit their letters of recommendation.
