Credential Files

Whether you call it a credential file, a dossier, or a placement file, let Interfolio, Inc. help you send employers and graduate schools this collection of documents showing your academic and professional credentials.

Interfolio is an online credentials management service that is available to University of Arkansas students and alumni. Interfolio is an economical and convenient way, for example, for a Ph.D. candidate to send academic credentials to a search committee, an undergraduate to send application materials to graduate and professional schools, or a teacher to apply for a teaching position.

Generally, a credential file will not be needed for a candidate applying for a position in business or industry. In these fields, letters of recommendation, if requested, are handled directly between the job candidates and the employer.

Interfolio's service allows the candidate to build an internet portfolio - a complete file of all credentials, including:

  • Confidential letters of recommendation
  • Resume and/or Curriculum Vitae
  • Writing samples
  • Dissertation abstract
  • Supervising teacher evaluation
  • Student & peer evaluations
  • Transcripts - from all of your degrees

You have 24/7, global access to your portfolio. Completing your applications will take minutes instead of days and will cost less than a trip to a copy store and post office.
