Three letters of recommendation
Three professional recommendations are required from individuals who can speak to your potential for success in the program. You will provide information about your recommenders in the online application. CSU will contact them with instructions and a link to a secure form they will submit on your behalf. These letters should be written by a variety of individuals (advisors, professors, employers, supervisors, or individuals in similar positions) who have known you in different capacities. Letters should address your ability to successfully pursue and complete graduate studies, not merely attest to your character. The online application will prompt your reviewers to submit the letters of recommendation, but you should contact your reviewers in advance and provide each with guidelines for preparing letters of recommendation. You should also later confirm with the individual that the letter of recommendation was submitted.
Statement of purpose
Indicate your career goals and professional interests. Be sure to describe how the M.P.P.A. program and faculty will allow you to accomplish these goals.
