You can upload and submit reference letters on behalf of your faculty, by following these steps:
- Each professor will need to create a Reference Letter Writer account. If they are AEA members, they can sign up using their member account credentials. If they are not members, they can easily create a free non-member account.
- After each professor's Reference Letter Writer account has been approved, they will be able to to add you as a surrogate by clicking on the link on the Reference Letter Writer dashboard.
- After the professor adds you, you will receive an email inviting you to be a surrogate. Click on the link in the email to complete the process. If you are an AEA member, you can use your member account credentials. If not, you can easily create a free non-member account.
- Once your surrogate account has been set up, you will be able to view and manage all reference letter requests from your own account.
Both you and the letter-writer will receive emails each time a letter request is made by a candidate; the letter-writer can change the email settings in the letter-writer dashboard to select either a weekly digest or a preference for no emails.
