I have completed my application. However, one of my referees states that he/she has not received the online recommendation request. What do I do?

It is recommended that you inform your referees prior to sending them an online recommendation request. Additionally, it is always beneficial to tell your referees to check their SPAM box, as some mailbox filter settings direct these emails into the SPAM box. You can also re-send the request by clicking on the ‘Send Reminder’ link on the application website.
