Distribute recommendation form link. Two recommendations are required. Reference writers must submit their confidential recommendation using the online form. Additional space is provided for personalized comments regarding your skills, which we strongly encourage. You will also need to provide the following information to your references: your first and last name as they appear on your UC San Diego records, phone number, and the names of the communities to which you are applying. Revelle, Marshall, and Sixth Colleges are using the online reference form. If you are applying to any of these communities, your references each only need to submit the form once on your behalf, but will need to check the appropriate box(es) on the form in order for it to be sent to the correct office(s).
One of the required letters must be completed by a Resident Assistant: We strongly recommend your reference form be from your current or past RA. If you have not lived on a college/university campus, you may contact any RA (or former residence life staff member) who is familiar with your skills. Any exceptions must be approved in advance by the selection coordinator, Janice Lew Santos (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Second letter: It is recommended that the remaining reference be completed by an individual who is familiar with your leadership skills or work style, such as a former supervisor, a student organization advisor, a student leader, or a faculty member. We strongly encourage letters from UC San Diego staff members. Former teachers, mentors, coaches, or advisors are also acceptable.
