Can I submit a student recommendation without using the Coalition system?

If you receive a student's recommendation request from the Coalition site, you can either submit the recommendation via the Coalition site or  through another means (such as paper mail, or Naviance).

  • If you don't plan to submit via the Coalition site, contact the student who requested your recommendation, inform them that you will be submitting through separate means.  The student should be able to give you the correct mailing address, and/or any other information you need. Generally, colleges require both a Letter of Recommendation and a School Report (such as a  NACAC school report).

  • If you have a Coalition account, log in and select Technical Support for help articles on submitting recommendations via the site.


If you have questions about what to submit and you don't have a Coalition account, ask the student who made the request for more information. Students  have access to a full list of help articles, which may offer more guidance.
