Credential Service Registration

Benefits of a Credential File
One of the primary benefits of obtaining a university education is having the ability to provide resources when employers ask for your references. A letter from one of your professors or instructors can help in creating a picture of your character, potential and proficiencies. We encourage you to start a file and to keep it filled.

Some of the pluses of a Credential File:

  • These offer a great way of keeping all of your letters of recommendation from FACULTY MEMBERS ONLY on file in a safe place.
  • Please note: Letters are kept on file for 6 years after you graduate. After 6 years they are discarded.
  • All letters will look professional and will appear on Holy Family University letterhead.
  • You can obtain copies of your original letters of recommendation at any time before the 6-year deadline.
  • At your request, we can accommodate immediate employer or graduate schools requests.
