Recommendations | | Georgia Institute of Technology | Atlanta, GA


We will only accept one (1) recommendation from your counselor and one (1) from the teacher of your choice. Any additional recommendations will not be considered with your application.

Counselor Recommendation

You should ask your counselor to submit the Common Application School Report or a similar form. An actual counselor recommendation letter is not required for admission but will be reviewed, if submitted. We understand that some students attend high schools where the demands of their counselor's load do not afford them the opportunity to provide a letter for each applicant. If your counselor is in that situation, please be assured that the absence of a recommendation letter will not impact your application review in any way.

Teacher Recommendation

One (1) teacher recommendation will be considered if you choose to submit this information. Recommendations must be completed through the evaluation form on the Common App or similar. We recommend you ask a teacher of an academic subject (for example, English, math, science, social science, or foreign language) to complete the form as instructed and submit electronically.

What We Are Looking For

Counselors and teachers may provide an external perspective on you as a person and applicant to Georgia Tech. We expect you to provide us with all information pertinent to your application, and your recommender may provide additional perspective/insight on that information.
