Interfolio Credential File Service
The SBU Career and Professional Readiness Center is pleased to announce our partnership with Interfolio, Inc. for online management of credential files for educators. Interfolio is a well-established, low cost, online credentials management service for candidates applying to teaching, counseling or administrative education positions. This platform offers students more service options and faster turnaround.
For Education Majors wishing to establish a credential file
Students and alumni who are interested in establishing a credential file that is confidential (that is, it contains letters of recommendation that you cannot view) can do so through Interfolio, Inc.
The easy way to manage Letters of Recommendation
Request letters of recommendation, store documents online and deliver to any institution as electronic or hard copy. Through this service, references can submit their letter of recommendation to your account for you to distribute how you wish. As an applicant, you decide which letters of recommendation are sent to each particular program/institution. Furthermore, if you decide to apply to an additional school after all your applications are sent, you don't need to scurry around campus trying to get another letter from each reference to complete you application. You simply log-in to your Interfolio account and choose which letters to send to the school.
