An email will be sent to them automatically providing a confidential link where they may upload their letters of recommendation on your behalf.
Hint: Complete the References section early! This cannot be stressed enough. It is in your best interest that all of your references are received when applications go forward for review in early February. Complete the References section as early as possible to allow your referees more time to complete the letters. Do this even if you are not ready to submit. You are strongly encouraged to let your referees know that an emailed request for a recommendation will be coming to them from email@example.com, so they can watch for it (the email request is sent as soon as you click the Send Request button).
Note: You may submit your application for admission before your letters of reference are received by the Academy. Referees are still able to attach letters to your application even after you have submitted!
After you have submitted your application you can log back in to view the status of your letters. “Complete” means the referee has successfully submitted their letter through the electronic system. If the status is labeled as “Requested,” this means the referee has not yet completed the online submission process. You can choose to resend the request or supply an alternate email in case your referee’s spam filter blocks the original request or has removed the link.
References are required to be submitted electronically through the Slideroom process. In the rare instance, your referee is unable to submit via Slideroom please contact the Admissions Office (248-645-3300 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for guidance.
