Next, we will review the guidelines for writing a letter of recommendation for a student. If the letter of recommendation contains only directory information, no written release is required from the student. However, if the student requests non-directory information such as grades, GPA, number of credit hours, and Social Security number to be included in the letter of recommendation, then you will need to obtain a completed University Letter of Recommendation Authorization Form from the student prior to writing the letter.
