  2. You will then click on "Submit Supplemental Items" (or log back in later and choose "Bear App Profile") to submit the following in the online application system once you have completed your graduate school application:
    • A copy of your current valid Elementary, Secondary or Early Childhood teaching license.
    • Three professional letters of recommendation - the system will help you initiate requests to be sent to these individuals.
