PDF application Instructions:

  • Please submit the PDF application by email to flas@utah.edu. Send all materials in one email, and, if possible, in one combined PDF file.
  • If unable to send a single PDF file, please send materials in one email with the FLAS application and transcripts attached as separate documents. The application materials, excluding letters of recommendation, must be sent directly by the applicant (please do not request for transcripts to be sent directly to our office).

  • Candidates using a PDF application should provide their recommenders with a Recommendation Form to be submitted along with their letters.
  • Letters of recommendation and recommendation forms must be sent directly from the recommender, not the applicant, to flas@utah.edu.

Note: DO NOT fill out a PDF application if you have a UNID. PDF applications should only be used by applicants who do not have a UNID.

Applicants must upload transcripts from all institutions of higher education attended, including the University of Utah

We can accept electronic transcripts or a PDF of a hard copy transcript.

Applications must include two letters of recommendation. 

  • Applicants using the online application will enter the names and email addresses of their recommenders in the form. 
  • Applicants using the PDF application should provide their recommenders with a Recommendation Form to be submitted along with their letters. (Those applying online will not need to provide recommenders with a form.)

The strongest letters of recommendation come from university professors. We strongly recommend submitting one letter to support the applicant's academic strengths and one to support the applicant's language learning skills.

Important note: Please enter the names and email addresses for your letters of recommendation at least two weeks prior to the due date and email prompts will be sent to your recommenders. Letters of recommendation must be received, not only requested, by the application due date.
