Duke MeM Letter of recommendation 2023-2024
For master’s degree applicants: We require three (3) letters of recommendation.
Non-degree and certificate applicants: We require two (2) letters of recommendation.
Recommendations must be submitted electronically in the online application. These can be academic or professional. If you’re still a student, at least one should be academic. If you’re a working professional, it’s fine for all three to be professional.
When choosing academic recommendation providers, don’t simply choose those professors who gave you the highest grades. Instead, think about selecting those who can give insight into your preparedness for the program. Give them an overview of the program, a copy of your resume and an understanding of your goals.
In the online application, you will be required to enter the contact information of your recommenders—including your email address. The recommenders will, in turn, be emailed a link from which they will access the online recommendation form and be allowed to upload a letter in support of your application.
You may submit your application if your recommendation providers haven’t yet submitted their recommendations. Our online application system will continue to match your material after submission.
