Reusing a letter of reference or contact information
Requesting a letter of reference
When letters of recommendation are a requirement (and not just contact information), you must notify your references through the system in order to fulfill the requirement. If you do not request the letter, your application will not be marked as complete and can't be reviewed by the search committee.
- Click My References.
- Click Request letter of reference by the appropriate reference name.
- A template opens. If desired, personalize the email.
- Click Next ».
- Review the email.
- When ready, click Send request.
- Your reference will shortly receive an email with the subject line: "[UC Merced Recruit] Letter of Reference Requested"
You may re-request letters by returning to My References in your application.
Why is the My References tab missing?
When an application does not require references, the My References tab will be absent.
