On July 1, 2010 the Career Development
Center discontinued its Credentials File service.
Students and alumni
are directed to Interfolio,
the premier online reference/credentials management service for candidates
applying for graduate school, academic positions, or other areas of employment.
Faculty and staff can create a free Interfolio writer's account:
- Once students/alumni have registered with Interfolio, upload the letters you have written electronically into Interfolio’s safe and secure system, or mail letters directly to Interfolio.
- You maintain access to all uploaded documents, to check the status or easily make updates to documents you’ve written.
- To learn more, review the Interfolio Letter Writer User’s Guide
Interfolio’s Reliability and Security:
- Interfolio reviews every letter once upon receipt and again prior to delivery to ensure accuracy and legitimacy.
Letter writers can personally verify the authenticity of documents they upload electronically through writer accounts.
Interfolio is FERPA compliant and uses multiple layers of technological security to ensure that confidential documents stay that way. Students cannot read closed or confidential letters.
Robust technological safeguards, including SSL encryption, keep stored documents secure, and private. Digital backups are stored at a secure, off-site location to further protect important documents.
