Send Dossier Materials Via Email

Users with an upgraded Dossier Deliver account can email materials, including confidential letters of recommendation, to institutions who accept email submissions of application materials. To ensure the integrity of this process when emailing confidential letters, our quality control agents will check to verify the email of the address provided, and requesters never have access to a confidential recommendation. An annual subscription costs $48 and pays for 50 electronic academic deliveries. It is also easy to use Deliver to send hard copies of application materials via USPS or FedEx.


Applying to Interfolio-hosted positions is free. Check out these articles on how to apply to a position hosted by Interfolio, how to Upload a Confidential Letter to an Online Application System, and How Your Letter Writer Can Access and Verify Receipt of Materials for more information.
