Letter of Recommendation Form


Letter Submission Form

  • This form directs where PPAC will send your letter packet. There are two pages for this form.
  • You may email this form from your UC email account to the PPAC or deliver it to our office.


  • The PPAC uses AMCAS Letter Service and VirtualEvals to process letter of recommendation packets. 
  • Note to students applying to MD programs: 
    • If you plan to use the PPAC Letter Service (to have your recommendations submitted by us to your designated medical schools), please remember to select the "Letter Packet" option in the Letters of Evaluation section of your AMCAS application. 
    • If you believe that it is necessary to customize your letters for particular schools, please schedule an appointment with a PPAC advisor to discuss this process.


Letter of Recommendation Forms are to accompany each submitted letter of recommendation by Friday, June 22, 2018. The sooner your letters are submitted to our office, the more efficiently we can move them through to AMCAS.

Letter Submission Form:  Please submit this form only once you know that all of your letters of recommendation have been received at the PPAC.
