Interfolio

Interfolio is the system we use for supporting letter writers to upload their letters and is a confidential and permanent home for your letters.

IMPORTANT: You should ONLY send requests via email if you have had a personal conversation with a letter writer requesting a letter of recommendation from them and they have agreed to write on your behalf.

INSTRUCTIONS TO OPEN AN INTERFOLIO ACCOUNT

  1. Go to https://account.interfolio.com/dossier/signup?selected_institution=4849
  2. You will see: Get Started with Dossier
  3. Enter required information
    • EMAIL: Remember that you may want to use Interfolio after you graduate and your current undergraduate email address will expire. You may want to consider signing up with an alternate email address.
  4. DO NOT check the box which would update you with information about their services. This is not relevant to your account and is more of a marketing tool for them.
  5. DO check the box to agree to Interfolio's Terms of Service
    • There is no charge to open an account.
  6. Click on the SIGN UP Button!!!
  7. At this time, DO NOT sign up to upgrade to Dossier Deliver. There is a charge for deliveries of letters and documents. You will not need to mail anything from your Interfolio account until your composite letter packet is completed and ready to be sent to AMCAS which is usually around July or August of the application cycle. We will provide you with mailing instructions at that time.
