What to do if I'm a recommender and haven't received an email with instructions on how to log in and complete the request?
A email with details and instructions will be sent to the email address entered by the applicant under the recommendation step in the application/form as soon as they click 'Submit'. The applicant will need to complete this step in the application/form in order for the email to be sent. If the applicant has reached out to you prematurely and asked for a recommendation you won't be able to submit the recommendation until they complete this step in the application/form.
Please note, often times the email lands in the spam/junk folder or can be blocked by school district firewalls, but if you are unable to locate the email you can follow the instructions below.
Log into Kaleidoscope: https://apply.mykaleidoscope.com/login
In the top right, click on the "Sign in/ Sign Up" button. Make sure you log into your account with the email address submitted by the applicant. From there you will be prompted to set up a password if you have not logged into Kaleidoscope before. You can set a password by clicking the "Forgot your Password" button. Once logged in your home page will show the recommendation request(s) that need to be completed.
If you create an account associated with a different email address than the one submitted by the applicant, you will not be able to access the request and will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
