Student Recommendations and Endorsement Policy

Upon completion of the program, students are eligible for faculty endorsement appropriate to the students’ areas of specialization. Recommendations for employment, further graduate study, state licensure, and state and national certification will be given only for the program which the graduate has satisfactorily completed. Recommendations for licensing will not be granted prior to the student completing their graduate program. All requests for written endorsements must be submitted in writing to the faculty member within 2 years of graduation. Written endorsements are provided at faculty discretion. Endorsement determinations are made based on the student’s level of knowledge, skills, and disposition/professionalism. If a faculty member chooses to write a recommendation this will be done within 2 years of completion of the student’s program of study.
