Faculty members do not provide written student recommendations to the UAF (Universal Application Funding) system. However, many MHC-coordinated (MHConnect) internship positions (e.g., those arranged through the McCulloch Center) will require references. These references help on-campus committees decide among applicants, and – in many cases – the dossiers for finalists are forwarded to the internship provider for final selection.
Reference Option: Online Form or Letter
Faculty are invited to provide a student's reference by either by completing this brief online form or submiting a letter of recommendation (following the guidelines below).
Reference Letter Guidelines
- Please email letters to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the name of the student and title of the relevant internship (or internships) in the subject line.
- You may either attach a scanned copy of a formal letter on letterhead or simply provide a statement in the body of the email.
- If the student is applying to more than one MHC-IIP opportunity, it is your prerogative whether to write a single letter speaking to multiple opportunities or to submit multiple letters tailored to the different internships.
