You will need to have one completed reference submitted for you by your current or recent UGA. If you do not currently have a UGA, you should ask your most recent UGA to provide your reference. If your former UGAs are no longer available, you can ask any current or former UGA to provide a reference for you. Please note that the application's usual requirement is that your current UGA serve as your reference. The current or recent UGA as reference is a change for this year only given the decreased terms on campus for each student and a desire to ensure you can have the most holistic reference submitted.
If you encounter difficulty securing a reference from your current or former UGA, or if you want to request that a UGA other than your current UGA submit a reference for you, please contact the UGA Recruitment and Selection Committee as soon as possible.
Optionally, candidates may choose to have one additional reference submitted on their behalf. This option is intended primarily for candidates who are concerned that their UGA may not know them well enough to provide a thorough and accurate reference. The additional reference can be provided by a peer, employer, professor, coach, dean—anyone who can speak to your qualifications for this position.
