The overview page of your application provides the opportunity to create an invitation for you references (recommenders). If you click the hyperlinked "Create Invitation," you are directed to a form whereby you can enter the names and addresses of your recommenders along with your decision to waive the right to access the reference(s) or recommendation(s). The form is then submitted to the University of Denver's Office of Graduate Studies which will then send an invitation via email to your recommenders requesting the completion of an evaluation form and optional submission of a letter of recommendation. The following is a sample of the invitation sent to recommenders:
