I'm having a bit of a freak out right now, haha, so hopefully you all can help.
I am applying to USF and the last part of the application process for me is to send a letter of recommendation. My microbiology professor offered to write one for me at the end of the fall semester and I email him almost two weeks ago about it and haven't heard back. I need to send in the letter before the 15th of this month (so the end of this week) and I'm worried that he won't get back to me so I'm on to Plan B.
Plan B was for my the supervisor at my work to write a letter for me. He agreed and today I went online to make sure of the specifics and I saw that a "Recommendation Form" must be sent with it, and the form is specifically for a teacher to fill out about their relationship with me.
Does this mean that I can't have my work supervisor write the letter and that it must be from a teacher? If so then I don't know what to do. Or is this just IF you have a professor writing the letter?
Thanks so much, I appreciate the feedback.

Since I haven't seen the instructions, I can't be sure but it sounds like it is for a teacher and only a teacher. I would email the form to the Prof you originally asked and apologize and tell him the school needs his recommendation on this form. This will remind him and get you out of your jam.
