Recommendations

These different reflections help us understand your involvement and personality from various perspectives.

For first-year applicants, Dartmouth requires three recommendations and strongly encourages a fourth.

  • Arts Instructor: If you are submitting an art supplement for review, please invite your arts instructor to submit a recommendation letter via the “Other Recommender” section.
  • Additional Recommendation: You may submit an additional recommendation letter via the "Other Recommender" section.

We suggest that all recommendations be translated to English before they are submitted, and that the translator sign and date all such documents. Translations are verified once the documents have been submitted.
