Dossier/Credential Management Service

You are here

Thinking about applying to graduate/professional school? Starting to request letters of recommendation for applications or future employment?

Consider using an online credential service, which allows you to store and manage a confidential portfolio of important documents such as letters of recommendation, your resume or CV, and writing samples. At your request, the credential service will forward documents to graduate schools or employers in academia and industry as required by your job application. Check out the following options:

  • ChronicleVitae, a service of the Chronicle of Higher Education, offers a free dossier service that allows you to store and send application materials.
  • Interfolio offers Dossier, a free document collection service.
    • The set-up of the account and collection of materials is free.
    • Once you are ready to apply to graduate school, there is a $48/year to send up to 50 applications per year (Dossier Deliver).

Note: Students and alums are responsible for the purchase and management of their dossier account. Current Yale College students, for which a dossier service fee may provide a financial hardship, may submit a funding request through SafetyNet.
