What is Interfolio's Dossier?

Interfolio’s Dossier product provides you with one centralized account to collect, store, and deliver materials for admission to graduate school, jobs in higher education, and other academic and professional opportunities. Since 1999, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of applicants navigate stressful application processes so they can focus on looking their best in front of admissions offices and hiring committees.

You can use your account to store application materials such as recommendations, your CV, evaluations, and writing samples.  You can request confidential letters of recommendation through your Dossier account, which allows your writers to electronically upload or mail their letter directly to Interfolio to scan and upload. This process can save your letter writers from needing to send your letter to multiple institutions.

With your Dossier account, you can gather and organize confidential letters of recommendation and evidence of your research, teaching, and service. All materials are stored in your Dossier account, and managed completely by you. There are certain documents, such as confidential recommendations, that require you to waive your rights of access, but you have complete control over when and where all of your documents are sent.

Interfolio also provides you with tools to help manage your career materials. As your Dossier grows, you can organize and label your materials with tags, and easily find files with a simple search feature. You can create collections of materials you expect to use for different purposes in your academic life, or just to make them easier to find. For example, you could create separate collections for particular types of applications, or for upcoming reviews.

Whether electronically through Interfolio’s ByCommittee service, via email to an institutional HR department or committee chair’s email address, or via hard copy to a physical address, our Dossier service provides the flexibility for you to apply in whatever manner your institutions require.

As part of your use of Interfolio’s Dossier Service, you also get access to our Portfolio product (What is Interfolio's Portfolio Product?) giving you a place to share your work online.

Along the way, you have full access to Interfolio’s fantastic Support Team. We’re here to serve as advocates for you throughout the application process. If you have questions about the Interfolio product, or about anything at all Interfolio related, give us a call at (877) 997-8807 or shoot us an email at help@interfolio.com.
