Interfolio - Letter Writer

When you apply to graduate schools, recommendation letters are an important part of the process. The CLA career office can make that process easier for you through an online service called Interfolio Letter Writer, which helps you manage and send your recommendation letters.

How to Begin With Interfolio

Sign up for Interfolio's Letter Writer page. Letter submission and management is always FREE.

Interfolio additionally offers Dossier and Portfolio services for an annual fee. If you have questions, contact Interfolio directly.

Who Can Use Interfolio?

It's open to ALL undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. (Please note that we are the CLA career office, so our other services are for CLA students specifically.)

If you're applying to law schools, we don't recommend Interfolio for you. Law school application materials are handled through LSAC. For information about applying to law schools, see our pre-law section.

Interfolio was launced in January 2010. All new recommendation files will be set up through Interfolio. If you previously set up a paper Recommendation File through our office, you have two options:

You can transition to Interfolio's online system. OR
2) You can keep your paper Recomnendation File with us. See instructions about both options here.
