Letters of Reference and Credentials File Services

What is the Letters of Reference Service?

The Letters of Reference Service allows UCLA undergraduates, graduates, and alumni (who pay an annual activation fee) to store their letters of reference for graduate and professional school programs as well for support of faculty and post-doctoral research positions at the college and university level. Since these letters are solely for the purpose of supporting the application to graduate and professional school programs and for faculty and post-doctoral research positions, we will only send letters to universities and colleges. We will not send letters to support applications to scholarships or internships. Since the purpose of these services is to send letters to multiple institutions, we can only accept non-specifically addressed letters.
