Online Credentials Service...
Since 2000, the Career Development Center has partnered with Interfolio.com to bring students and alumni 24/7 accessibility to our Credentials File Service!
References or Letters of Recommendations are an important part of a candidate's search for Professional Employment as well as application for admission to Graduate / Professional Schools.

The On-Line Credentials File Service is easy, effective, comprehensive, and very affordable.
It is a unique reference collection and distribution system that may be used in conjunction with both standard and electronic applications. Users may create an "on-line" reference file using this system, and organizations will have the option of receiving the students' recommendations electronically or in hard-copy (paper) format. No delays, no hassles!
Confidential Letters of Reference
Many graduate and/or professional schools prefer what are known as "confidential or waived" Letters of Recommendation. Students / applicants wishing to waive their right of access to their written references will do so on-line, and will print out a form from their account that they will present to their reference writer. This form will provide the required waiver signature and will provide the writer with three (3) options for writing and submitting that reference letter to the specific student's file. It is easy and convenient for both reference writer and reference gatherer.
Open Letters of Reference
Students choosing not to waive their right of access to these letters (and their file) will follow the same process as noted above BUT will be able to see their letters on-line once the writer submits them. The Career Development Center recommends that students consider "waiving" their right of access to all letters since such "waived" letters are generally weighed more heavily by Admissions Reps and Employers.
