Interfolio for Faculty & other letter writers

Interfolio, the premier online credentials management service, is now available at the University of Tennessee. Interfolio gives students and alumni the ability to manage letters of recommendation and other credentials online. Interfolio is the easiest and most affordable way for a student to send application materials to graduate and professional schools, a teaching candidate to apply for a new position, or a PhD to send academic credentials to a search committee.

Interfolio does not just benefit students and alumni. It also helps ease the burden of those faculty entrusted with composing letters of recommendation. Here’s how:

Interfolio writer’s account

Faculty and other letter writers may establish a free writer’s account at Interfolio, which enables direct uploading of documents. Some of the benefits include:

Quickly and easily upload letters. Electronically uploading a file to our system is the fastest and safest way to submit a document to Interfolio on behalf of your students. It is immediately available for the student to use in the application process. This saves time and limits anxiety as deadlines approach!

Retain access to uploaded documents. You will never again have to rummage through your papers to retrieve an old letter of recommendation. Your writer’s account enables you to have access to all documents you have uploaded into our system. Original documents may be easily retrieved so that you can edit and update them.

Increased fraud protection. As a security precaution, Interfolio does not receive documents via e-mail, nor do we allow unknown individuals to directly upload documents. By requiring you to set up a writer’s account before sending us a document electronically, we can verify your identity, thereby reducing the fraudulent submission of letters of recommendation.

Convenience. Though the benefits of a writer’s account are numerous, it is an optional service. With a writer’s account, you can electronically upload documents to Interfolio’s safe and secure system. If you choose not to create a writer’s account, you can still mail or fax letters to Interfolio.

To Create a Writers Account…

It takes just a few minutes to create an account and begin managing your written documents online immediately. Sign-up now.
