Students who need a letter of recommendation from the counselor should give detailed information as to what is required for the letter of recommendation and where to send the letter once it is completed.  Please allow 2 weeks for letters of recommendation.  During busy times of the year in the counseling office, turn around time may be 2-3 weeks.  Failure to provide adequate information will delay the process considerably.
