For academic references, please include professionals in the field of counseling whenever possible. For character reference, please list someone that can provide an objective prospective (ex. supervisor, boss, professor, etc.).

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) permits college and seminary students to view materials contained in his/her education record. Letters of reference are discarded upon acceptance to Richmont and are not considered part of the student's record. Because some individuals may be hesitant to write a letter of recommendation if confidentiality is not guaranteed, students may choose to waive the right to view letters of recommendation. Signing such a waiver is not required nor is it a condition of admission to Richmont
