Information for Recommenders
To start a new recommendation, click on the link at the bottom of this page and then on Start New Form. An Access Code will be assigned, please write it down for future use when you return to this recommendation.
Use a word processor, then copy and paste your text into the online NPSC Recommendation. Please do not use special characters or any characters created with option keys. Punctuation marks such as apostrophes and quotation marks do not always transfer correctly. After you paste, the Internet text may look like a continuous string of text and not show the paragraph breaks, but they are present, so there is no need to edit for paragraph breaks. Your recommendation will transmit and print after verifying punctuation marks.
Also Note: In NPSC's experience, in almost every case where a recommender has difficulty filling out the online form, the problem turns out to be an outdated browser. Please make sure that you have the latest version of your browser. Thank you. If you still have problems, contact email@example.com; (800) 952-4118 or (575) 525-0103
After completing the recommendation, the option buttons are "Save" and "Submit Completed Form." If you are ready for final processing click on the "Submit Completed Form." The recommendation will be scanned for completeness and the program will advise you of discrepancies or notes you should be aware of.
If all is well this process automatically sends your final updates and codes to the NPSC database as a completed electronic recommendation. If you wish, you may then print a copy of your recommendation for your files .
You will not be able to re-enter your recommendation and make modifications. If you do need to change your recommendation, call the NPSC office at (800) 952-4118 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your recommendation be unlocked. You will then be required to make your corrections and repeat the guidance above for finalizing the online recommendation.
