A letter of recommendation is optional, but strongly encouraged. The letter must be from a teacher of a major subject area and should address the questions listed below. If you are applying as a current TU student, you may request a letter of recommendation from a high school teacher or a Towson University faculty member.
1. Does the student show curiosity in reaching beyond what is immediately required or expected?
2. Does the student contribute constructively in groups?
3. Would you look forward to having this student in class again?
4. If you could suggest an improvement in this student’s approach to his or her own education, what would it be?
Letters of recommendation should be submitted by mail (to Honors College, Towson University, 8000 York Road, Towson, MD 21252). Letters of recommendation must be unopened and sent directly from the high school (or other institution if transferring).
