Letters of recommendation which are made from the recommender’s personal observation or knowledge do not require a written release from the student who is the subject of the recommendation. However, if the student wishes the recommender to include personally identifiable information from a student’s education record (such as grades, GPA, etc.), the student must provide a signed release.
