Credentials Service

Note : The Career Development Center no longer maintains a hard copy of credentials. Students requesting letters of recommendation should have an account with Interfolio, Inc. to maintain a credentials file. You can also direct faculty and administrative staff to open a free letter writer account to submit letters of reference.


Interfolio, the premier application portfolio management service, is now available to students at Middle Tennessee State University. Interfolio is the easiest and most affordable way for

  • a prospective teacher to apply for a teaching position,

  • a PhD to send academic credentials to a search committee,

  • an undergraduate to send application materials to graduate and professional schools, or

  • alumni looking for lifelong professional portfolio management.

Interfolio's online system allows you to build an online portfolio - a complete file of all your credentials. Nearly any document can be stored, including, but not limited to:

  • Confidential letters of recommendation
  • Resumes and CVs
  • Dissertation abstract
  • Statement(s) of purpose
  • Writing samples
  • Unofficial transcripts
  • Teaching Portfolio documents
  • Supervising teacher evaluations
  • Student & peer evaluations

Benefits of using Interfolio:

  • Build a portfolio of all your important documents. Ask writers for letters of recommendation or add non-confidential documents yourself. Up to 250 MB of storage is included.

  • 24/7 access: With this web-based system you can manage your portfolio whenever and wherever you want.

  • Comprehensive deliveries: Interfolio allows you to deliver every document needed for each application in one complete, professional package.

  • Fast, customized deliveries to job opportunities, and further study anywhere in the world. You can specify which documents to send for each deliver and the order in which your materials are packaged so your presentation is powerful and persuasive.

  • Self managed files: With Interfolio you have control of your portfolio. You don't have to rely on others to make the decisions about what documents are delivered on your behalf.

  • Lightning-fast delivery: Each delivery--paper or electronic--is sent within one business day of your request. If you need to meet a deadline, express deliveries can be made the same day (as long as you make the request by 2 PM EST).

  • Low Cost: There is a nominal fee per year to set up and maintain your file; it's cheaper to send a 30 page delivery through Interfolio than to go to Kinko's and the US Post Office. Click here for more pricing options .
