Welcome Recommender

Students are asked to submit a recommendation to study abroad. Our office allows applicants to request online recommendations from faculty members, staff and non-UW-Eau Claire faculty/staff. For your convenience, the recommendation may be completed online through our website. Once a student requests a recommendation, you will receive an email from studyabroad@uwec.edu, with “Recommendation Request from Student Name” in the subject line. Sometimes this email may go to spam, please check your spam or junk mail folder to ensure you received the email. If you did not, please tell the student to contact the Center for International Education. We are able to resend the recommendation request on their behalf. Students are only able to request ONE letter. We encourage you to compose the recommendation in a word document first, and then copy and paste it into the recommendation once you are ready to submit.

You have two options to complete the recommendation:

Option 1 - Simple Complete (Does not require login)

The recommendation request email contains a Recommendation ID# and the name of the applicant who issued the request. Please use the login link provided in the email and enter these credentials in order to access the student's recommendation.

Option 2 -Complete the recommendation as a user (Requires login)

You have the option of logging in as a user in our recommendation system so that you can see all of your pending recommendation requests, view recommendations that you have created, and communicate more effectively with the study abroad office.
