Asking for a letter of recommendation

  • IF YOU EARNED AN A+/ A / A- grade in a UC San Diego Economics class and HAVE an @ucsd.edu e-mail address:  
    • Please use our letter of recommendation system to ask for a letter of recommendation from the faculty members who gave you such a high grade.  NOTE:  The letter of recommendation system opens on September 27, 2021 for next year’s application cycle. 
  • IF YOU EARNED AN A+/ A / A- grade in a UC San Diego Economics class and DO NOT HAVE an @ucsd.edu e-mail address: 
    • Consider signing up for Alumni Email for Life (its free) and then you can use our letter of recommendation system (which re-opens on September 29, 2021).
    • You can also e-mail your Professors directly.  When you e-mail the faculty member(s), be sure to include the following statement: “I consent to the release of personal and educational information about me in the letter of recommendation that I have requested from you. This authorization allows you to release all information about me, within the University’s possession, to [fill in details (e.g., any other educational institution, any centralized application processing services (list by name if possible), both, etc.]. This authorization shall remain valid unless and until it is rescinded in writing.”
  • Please use our Letter of Recommendation system (which opens 9/27/21) to ask Economics faculty for a letter of recommendation
