Can I get copies of my letters of recommendation that were sent to a college?

Q & A Main Article 3

It depends. You’re allowed to request and get copies of your letters of recommendation unless you’ve signed a waiver giving away your right to access them (you can still ask for the names of the references).

If your letters are used for any reason other than as a recommendation, you can get copies of them regardless of whether you signed a waiver.

Your school can’t require that you sign a waiver in order to be accepted, receive financial aid or any other services.
