Departmental Component #1- Letters of Recommendation

Three recommendations are required for submission to the ASLP department using the link below. It is preferred that these recommendations be written and sent by individuals who are familiar with your academic background and who can attest to your aptitude for challenging graduate level academic work. The number of recommendations from individuals outside of academia (e.g. employers, community leaders) should be kept to a minimum, and they may be weighted differently based on their relevance to academic-specific information. It is recommended that students request letters of recommendation from at least two faculty members from their undergraduate program.

You will need to fill out the information requested through the link below for each of your recommenders separately. Each of your recommenders will receive the instructions he or she needs to submit a letter of recommendation in support of your graduate application.  The ASLP graduate admissions office will send these instructions to the e-mail address that the applicant provides to UNT; please verify the accuracy of each recommender's e-mail address before you send the recommender's contact information to UNT using the link below. It is your responsibility to confirm if your recommenders completed and submitted the form prior to February 1st.
