Faculty Submitting Recommendations

Valid email addresses are essential for your faculty recommendations.

  • .edu email addresses strongly preferred.
  • If you give invalid addresses, your recommenders will not receive the email messages that would enable them to recommend you.
  • Recommendations must be completed by the specified recommenders; applicants may not submit their own recommendations.
    • Example: If you name Dr. John Doe as Recommender 1, your application will be considered dishonest if the email address you provide for Recommender 1 belongs to anyone other than Dr. John Doe or your Recommendation 1 is submitted by anyone other than Dr. John Doe.
Under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, you have the right to view these recommendations in your file at Nebraska. Do you choose to waive that right?

Note that some faculty prefer to write recommendations (even very positive ones) only for students who waive this right of access.
