If references are required, you will see a "References" tab at the top of your application. When you click the tab, an Add Reference button will be available. Clicking this button will bring up the window displayed below:
You can add new references by inputting their information and clicking Send Request. This will email your reference provider immediately with a request that they add a letter for you within the online reference portal. Once they do, it will be attached to your application.
If you uncheck the 'waive my right' box (this box will be available at the discretion of the organization to which you are applying) you will be able to view the letter of recommendation once your recommender has submitted it. However, your recommender will also be given the opportunity to decline the request. If left checked, the recommender will not be presented with a decline option.
The reference grid will show you the status of your references and allow you to resend the request if you need to. Although you cannot edit your SlideRoom application once you have submitted it, you can log back in and edit your reference provider information any time before they submit their recommendation.
In order to edit your reference provider information, click on the Edit link next to the reference that you wish to edit. You will then be able to edit any information that you input for the reference initially. If you change the email address, a new reference request will be emailed to your reference.
If your recommender is not receiving your reference requests, please see our troubleshooting guide.
