Possible Reasons Interfolio Cannot Process Deliveries to Medical/Dental School

As mentioned above there are some applications Interfolio is not able to support. Here are a few reasons why an Interfolio delivery may be put on hold or canceled:

Reason Description
The recipient requires supplemental questions As a 3rd party, Interfolio cannot answer on behalf of evaluators even if the answers are provided to Interfolio. Interfolio can be held liable if any information supplied on their behalf is not accurate. Oftentimes Interfolio will not know what the form includes until the processing team gets started on the delivery. Please allow for enough time between submitting applications and getting letters delivered. Please pay close attention to Interfolio's processing window times for all delivery types.
There are not enough delivery credits in an account to process the delivery.

More delivery credits can always be added to an account.

  • The proper Letterhead is present.
  • The signature is present and accurate.
