Letters of Recommendation

Letters of recommendation are an important part of the college application process. Letters provide evidence of a student's academic, leadership and social emotional success. You can request letters of recommendations from teachers, school staff members, coaches, supervisors and your school counselor. 
When requesting the letter, be sure to give ample time for the person to write their letter. Counselors ask at least 4 weeks notice due to the number of students on caseloads, teachers may ask the same. It's necessary to also provide some information about yourself when requesting the letter. Use this template HERE when requesting a letter from your counselor. You may choose to use it for other letters as well.

CSU...apply here


With 23 campuses, CSU is the largest, most diverse, and one of the most affordable university systems in the country. Fresno State, Cal Poly SLO, Cal Poly Pomona, and San Francisco State are popular CSU campuses for Clovis High graduates. Many CSU campuses have higher standards for particular majors or for students who live outside the local admission area. Because of the number of students who apply, several campuses have higher standards (supplementary admission criteria) for all applicants. Make sure to learn about admission requirements early in your high school career.

University of California (UC)

Admissions Data

Private Colleges & Universities

 There are hundreds of private colleges and universities from which to choose. There are 70 independent undergraduate colleges and universities in California alone. Private colleges and universities are quite diverse in nature, including research universities, small liberal arts colleges, faith-based colleges and universities, and specialized colleges.


The cost is higher than public colleges and universities. However, these institutions have a variety of financial aid programs that often make the cost comparable to a public institution. Your ability to graduate in 4 years at a private institution may be greater than at a public institution due to more courses being available to you as a student there.


Some independent institutions, such as USC, Stanford, and California Institute of Technology, are highly selective. Other universities are less selective in nature. Visit their websites for specific admission information and application deadlines.


In many cases, transfer to a private college is possible after your freshman year at a community college or other institution. To explore private schools outside of California, we recommend using the search tool in Xello.

Many private colleges accept applications through the Common App. 

Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs)

There are 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the nation. While the 105 HBCUs represent just three percent of the nation's institutions of higher learning, they graduate nearly 20 percent of African Americans who earn undergraduate degrees. HBCUs were created to support African American students but these institutions of higher learning are no longer exclusive for African American students. Today, HBCUs have a significant percentage of non-African American student populations that consist of Asian, Hispanic, International and white American students.
