The HPPLC/Interfolio Recommendation Service Partnership

HPPLC has discontinued our recommendation service and has partnered with Interfolio to provide recommendation services for Indiana University students. 

IMPORTANT: ALL COMMUNICATIONS and questions regarding HPPLC's Recommendation Service must be sent to


What is Interfolio? 

Interfolio allows you to create an electronic recommendation letter account that can be self-managed 24/7 from any smart phone, tablet, or computer.  You can immediately see which letters have arrived, and which have not. You can specify which letters to send for each delivery and the order in which your documents are packaged. All delivery requests are processed within one day guaranteed (including weekends), with multiple delivery options available. For complete information, see


If you choose to use Interfolio, you can “affiliate” your account with the HPPLC office (at no extra charge) — then HPPLC advisors can access your account (only if requested by you) and provide assistance and guidance on your letters! 

Who Should Consider Using Interfolio?

  • Future applicants to MEDICAL and DENTAL schools are likely to find it highly beneficial to use Interfolio.  To learn more, click HERE.
  • If you are PRELAW and are considering opening an Interfolio account, click HERE.
  • If you are pre-OT, PT, or PA: recommendation services such as Interfolio are not currently compatible with the central application services OTCAS, PTCAS, and CASPA. However, some future OT, PT, and PA applicants may still find Interfolio useful to keep their letters in one place prior to applying. For important details and guidelines click HERE.
