License + Master's - Recommendation

BW Master of Arts in Education, license+masters and initial licensure programs require two recommendations. The BW admission office provides this online recommendation form and also a paper version, if preferred. The recommendations should be completed by individuals you have asked to provide either a professional or personal reference for you -- a principal, supervisor, co-worker, college professor or someone who is familiar with your goals and abilities. It should not be completed by any member of your immediate family.

Once received by the admission office, these recommendations are confidential and will not be shared with you, the applicant. The person serving as your reference will need to share those comments with you directly.

Your application may not be fully considered until all recommendations are submitted, so encourage the individuals you select to complete this form promptly.


Thank you for taking time to complete this online recommendation form for applicants interested in teacher licensure and/or graduate study in education at Baldwin Wallace University. In consideration of each applicant, emphasis is placed on comments from references concerning an applicant’s academic preparation and potential for a successful career in teaching. We are particularly interested in your perceptions of character and integrity, commitment to leadership in the field of education, motivation and potential for personal and professional growth.

This recommendation is confidential and will not be shared with the applicant. If you would like the applicant to have a copy of your comments, please print this page before submitting it to the BW admission office.
