The HPAO allows CSULB students and alumni to store their letters of recommendation for their professional and graduate school application in our office. Future professional and graduate schools applicants will complete a Letter of Recommendation Forwarding Service Application to open a Letters of Recommendation File. Students must obtain original letters of recommendation from faculty and/or supervisors of relevant clinical, volunteer, community service, or work experience and submit them to the HPAO. All letters will be kept on file until the student requests that they be forward to professional schools, central application services, or graduate programs.
The intent is to streamline the application process by:
Complete a Letter of Recommendation Forwarding Service Application. Print the form or fill it out online and print, then drop off the completed, signed forms at the Health Professions Advising Office.
Ask for letters of recommendation and submit letters to the HPAO. The form Writing and Submitting Letters of Recommendation should be given to all recommenders (e.g. faculty/supervisor) for guidance on how to compose a recommendation letter and how to send their letter to the HPAO.
Complete a Letters of Recommendation Forwarding Request Form. If you would like to request that letters in your file be forward to professional schools, central application services, or graduate programs; print out the form, fill it out, and submit it to HPAO.
