Transfer recommendation types

If you're a current college student applying as a Transfer Applicant, you do not need any high school counselor recommendations.

Some colleges allow transfer applicants to add both General and Academic recommendations, but others allow only General Recommendations. If you need a General instead of an Academic Recommendation from your recommender, you will need to send a new General Recommendation request to them.

You can determine which type of recommendations the colleges you are applying to require from your Locker, or from the Official Documents section of the college application.

From your Locker
