Confidentiality of Evaluations
Most admission committees have a definite bias against letters of evaluation that have been written with the knowledge that the applicant will have access
to them. Through the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (known as FERPA or the Buckley amendment), you have a right to inspect your letter
or letters, but be aware that it is to your advantage to waive this right. Your composite letter will be described as a confidential document if you waive your
right to see each of your letters. If, however, you choose to retain your right to inspect any letter submitted in your behalf and have clearly identified your
intention to the author of the letter, that letter will be identified as "non-confidential."
(I waive/I do not waive) any right I may have to examine letters of recommendation or interview reports submitted to the UNH Pre-Professional Health Programs Office to be included in my application file.
You may add additional letters to your file. They must be received by the Pre-Health Office no later than May 17.
Letters that are not in by the May deadline can be uploaded directly to your application by the letter writer(s).
DO NOT list letters if you are having them go directly to the application services. ONLY list the letters that will be coming to the Pre-Health office.
Please notify the office if your previous letters will be updated and resubmitted.
No letters will be released for any purpose other than application to the health profession program listed.
