Steps for Submitting Letters to Campuses Other Than UW-Madison
- Your students should provide the writer with any information he or she might need, such as details about obstacles they’ve faced or the goals they have achieved.
- The student should ask the writer to submit the form to each UW campus they’re considering. The way the writer should do this depends on his or her job:
Teachers and school counselors should submit the completed form with the students’ paper or electronic transcripts. Teachers may ask students to deliver these forms to a counselor for submission. Counselors can attach the forms directly to a student’s transcripts.
Other types of writers, such as employers, may mail or email the form to the admissions office of each UW campus that the student is interested in. Mailing addresses and email addresses are listed on the first page of the form.
