All students who apply to the CSU International Programs are required to submit faculty recommendations.  Please read the instructions page for details about who you should ask to write your recommendations and how many recommendations you need to submit. If you would like to start by printing out the recommendation forms, click the links below:

  • Faculty recommendations – You must have two college instructors who are familiar with your recent academic work complete faculty recommendation forms for you. One recommendation form must come from a faculty member or graduate teaching assistant in your major department (minor where relevant). Do not request recommendations from employers, university staff, or administrators who have not had you as a student in a course.

  • Foreign language faculty recommendation – This recommendation is required from students who will be studying at the intermediate and advanced levels in the host country's language, including all native speakers, for Chile, China, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain and Taiwan. (Not required of students in beginning, “Learn Language” programs or those applying for Japan.)

  • Thank you for your interest in CSU International Programs!
