 Request for Letters of Recommendation

Request for Letters of Recommendation
Complete this form.
Complete the forms provided by the programs to which you are applying. If available, I prefer
completing on-line forms.
Note: I will not take responsibility for checking that your sections of the forms are complete.
Please write or type my name, address, e-mail, etc. on each form (including on-line forms)
as indicated:
Mary Jo Cooley Hidecker, Ph.D., CCC-A/SLP
Assistant Professor
Communication Disorders
1000 E. University Ave, Dept. 3311
University of Wyoming
Laramie, WY 82071
307 766-6098
For those recommendations not available on-line: Stamp and address an envelope for each
application. Use the return address shown below. If letters are to be sent to you, be sure to write
the name of the program on the outside of the envelope. You must not open envelopes that are
sent to you. If a school requires that I use an UW envelope, provide an address and a stamp.
Mary Jo Cooley Hidecker, Ph.D., CCC-A/SLP
Communication Disorders, Dept. 3311
University of Wyoming
Laramie, WY 82071
Print a copy of your unofficial transcript. (Please mark class(es) for which I was your instructor)
Find a large manila envelope that has a clasp to hold it closed. Write your name on the front.
Then, write the name of each program (including those with on-line applications) to which you
are applying and the date that the recommendation is due. Identify any schools that require me
to send my letter to you rather than directly to the school.
If you want confirmation that your letters were sent, include a self-addressed stamped postcard.
Put this form and the materials listed above in the envelope. Attach a picture of yourself if you
are not on my research team. Make an appointment to deliver it to me in person, so that we can
discuss your career plans.
Your information:
Name: ____________________________________________________________________________________
E-mail ____________________________________________________________________________________
*Be sure to provide a telephone number for the semester break as well as one for the school year.
