Letters of Reference

S-TESL grads can request letters of reference from their instructor(s). However, please be considerate of their time. You can help ensure a smooth process by providing:

  • complete information on the form;
  • a self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage;
  • at least two weeks to complete your request.

Requests for letters of reference cannot be faxed or emailed to your instructor as a self-addressed stamped envelope is required. If the instructor no longer works at S-TESL, you must contact the instructor privately.

For letters being sent to international addresses, please include the correct postage.

Graduate Credit

If you completed a graduate project for any of your S-TESL coursework, you received documentation to verify your additional work. Your transcript will not change so it’s especially important that you keep the paperwork. S-TESL does not retain this information. It is always up to the receiving institution to determine if any credits will be accepted for transfer.
