Select a teacher, counselor, or professor that you like (and one who likes you) and ask that person to write a letter of recommendation. Remember that most teachers are very busy so it is important to give them enough time to write a letter. Ask when it may be picked up. Some teachers may prefer to send it to UW-Platteville directly. If the teacher chooses to do so, you may want to check with the teacher at a later date to confirm that the letter was sent.
While waiting for the teacher to write the letter or recommendation, continue to work on the application. Make sure that the form is filled in completely. Sections A, B, and D must be completed by the applicant. Applications which are not filled in completely will be disqualified.
