As long as you maintain an active file, The Career Center’s Reference Letter Service (RLS) will forward your letters to graduate and professional school admissions offices, appropriate prospective employers, and scholarship and fellowship organizations at your request. Requests to forward your letters may be submitted online or the appropriate form can be downloaded and mailed, faxed, or presented in person to the RLS. The RLS is unable to accept requests by phone.
Please note that in order to submit your requests online, you will need your UM uniqname login and password. If you have a UM uniqname login but have forgotten your password, please call 734/764-HELP (764-4357) for assistance. If you do not have a current UM uniqname (or you never had one), please call the ITCS Accounts Office at 734/764-8000.

Remember that your file must be active (i.e., within five years from when it was opened or renewed) for your request to be processed. Requests are filled with the letters that are in your file at the time the request is submitted. Please take responsibility for checking the status of your file and ensure that all the expected letters have indeed arrived prior to submitting a request. The RLS is unable to hold requests until a certain letter arrives.
