Answers to Frequently Asked Questions The Recommendation Process

What should I do if my recommenders say they haven't received an email from Teach For America yet?

Once you submitted your recommenders contact information they were automatically sent an email from Teach For America with a link to their online recommendation form. If they haven't received our email, advise them to check their spam or junk folders, since our automatic emails are sometimes filtered there. You can also resend the email by clicking the "Send Reminder" button on your Recommender Info page.

Some universities and organizations bounce back our TFA Admissions emails as undeliverable, so a personal email address may be easier. If your recommenders have checked their spam folders and nothing is there, you should ask them for an alternate email address such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail, and edit their email address on your form.

If they continue to have issues, please have them contact directly.
