If you already have letters of recommendation in your possession, you may attach them yourself when attaching the other required documents in the online application system. If you would prefer, or if your letter writers would prefer to submit a confidential letter, you can enter their names and e-mail addresses in the online system, and the system will send an e-mail requesting them to submit a letter of recommendation via our online system. IMPORTANT: The system will NOT e-mail your letter writers until you have completely finished applying and receive a confirmation number from the system. Therefore, if you use this option, it is recommended that you finish applying at least 7 days prior to the closing date so that your letter writers have enough time to submit their letters. NOTE: Entering your letter writers' names and email addresses in order for them to receive an email generated by the system is a separate step from just listing them in the "References" section of the Application for Academic Employment.
