Submitting References Via Email
The people who are submitting a reference on your behalf may submit either a completed Candidate Evaluation Form or reference letter (preferably on letterhead).
The Candidate Evaluation Form may be submitted as either an attached scan or as an electronic document. A reference letter may be written as an email or as a document attached to an email.
The following rules apply to references submitted via email:
- References submitted via email must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- References submitted via email must contain a subject line that includes the applicant's name: Reference For _________.
- References submitted via email must come from the reference's employment/institutional email address.
- References submitted via email must show the referring person's, full name, employer, title, and the mailing address at which reference can be reached via mail at their employment.
Willamette University's Atkinson Graduate School of Management will treat all references submitted via an electronic document or email as confidential references to which the applicant has waived their right of review. Copies of references will not be made available to the applicant.
