Reference Letter Files

A reference letter file is a packet of recommendation letters and information about candidates submitted to an employer or graduate school as a part of the application process.

These packets are most commonly used by candidates for employment in educational institutions and those seeking admission to graduate or professional schools.

Students needing reference letter files are encouraged to self-manage using Interfolio.

UCC-managed reference letter files

POLICY CHANGE (docx): As of August 1, 2013, the UCC will no longer manage new reference letter files but will continue to manage files already created.

***Notice: When requesting files, please make sure you make an individual request for each file that needs to be sent out. This must be done individually due to changes in the payment portal which only allow you to pay for one reference letter file at a time.
