WRITING COLLEGE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STUDENTS

It is the student’s responsibility to request and monitor the completion and upload of recommendation letters to Naviance. School counselors are available every Tuesday and Thursday or by individual appointment to answer questions and support students in this process. Please encourage your students to visit us.
Students have been asked to meet with you in person at least two weeks in advance of any deadline to request a recommendation letter. If you agree to write a recommendation letter, students will add you to Naviance so you can upload your recommendation letters. Once they do so, you will receive an email request from Naviance to write a recommendation for this student. Please go into your Naviance account and upload the letter following these simple steps:


  1. Log in to Naviance at www.succeed.naviance.com

    • Account = hhsvt

    • Username = lastnamefirstinitial

    • Password = customized (you can request a new one if you’ve forgotten your password)

  1. Go to “manage and complete your student recommendations”

  2. Under student and “actions” click “prepare forms” for the particular student you are working on.

  3. In the middle of this section, find Teacher Documents and go to the drop-down menu. You will need to do both the Written evaluation and Common Application Form.

    1. Upload your recommendation letter for the written evaluation

    2. Complete the form for Common Application

  4. If it does not register as complete, please notify the student or his/her counselor.

Recommendation writing tips:
Schools are looking for your assessment of students as independent students who have the soft skills and the academic preparation to succeed in college. It is especially important to provide specific examples to support your assessment. If a student has had any periods of challenge or difficulty and you have anecdotes to share about how the students has overcome those challenges or has grown and is working to overcome them, that’s also extremely helpful. Your school counselors are happy to provide additional feedback and support to provide a meaningful and accurate letter of recommendation on behalf of your students.
