Use Dossier Deliver to Send Application Materials Via Email

With an Interfolio Dossier account, you control when and how your materials are sent to receiving institutions. You can use our fee-based service to mail or email application materials, recommendations and other documents anywhere in the world.

You can also upload letters of recommendation from your Dossier to an online application system. In addition, we work with many admissions offices and hiring committees to allow applicants to transmit documents electronically (for free!) through our ByCommittee.

Note that it is now possible to search for opportunites directly through Interfolio!

We have created separate articles about submitting application materials when applying to an opportunity through ByCommittee, and how to upload letters or recommendation to online application systems,
