Like teachers, counselors will need to upload their own recommendations. For Common App sending, counselors will also need to prepare Common App forms.

Uploading a Counselor Recommendation

  1. Go to cDocs
  2. In the Documents tab, find the student to upload the counselor recommendation for and click on their name
  3. In the sidebar that appears, click on Upload Documents and a blu box will appear. Upload the letter here in PDF format.
  4. Notice that an orange box appears. Be sure to identify the document type Letter of Recommendation-Counselor and the Author. We allow you to select the author because in some cases, a secretary or counselor may be assisting a colleague in uploading their documents.
  5. Once finished selecting the document type and author, click upload.

Preparing a Counselor Common App Form

  1. Go to cDocs
  2. In the Documents tab, find the student to prepare the form for.
