(Step-by-step instructional video can be found at the bottom of this page)

If your student account is linked to a high school on Scoir whose settings allow for it, you can request teacher recommendations via the My Colleges page.

How do I request teacher recommendations?

To request a recommendation:

  1. Go to the My Colleges page.
  2. Click Application Documents and then the Request a Recommendation button.
  3. Search for the teacher you’re requesting to provide a recommendation.
  4. Specify whether or not you’d like the recommendation to be for a specific college. If yes, select the college to which you would like the recommendation to be sent.
  1. Compose the request by editing the Subject and the Message. Once you’re finished, click Send.

How do I view the status of outstanding recommendations?

Students cannot access recommendations submitted on their behalf.

To view the status of outstanding teacher recommendations, follow these steps.

  1. Go to the My Colleges page.
  2. Click the Application Documents link and the status of all recommendation requests will be listed.
  3. If a request has not yet been acted upon by the recipient, you may cancel the outstanding request by clicking Cancel.

Once a teacher fulfills your request for a letter of recommendation, you will receive a notification within Scoir. You can download our Scoir mobile application (on iOS or Android) to receive a push notification once the letter is uploaded.
