Letters by Liaison

Letters by Liaison Evaluator Portal Services

We offer a single evaluator portal across all CAS services that enables recommenders to upload a single recommendation for a student’s applications to all programs participating in CSDCAS. Faculty previously recommending students for other health service professions that use Liaison’s CAS services (e.g., nursing, physical therapy) may already have used the Evaluator Portal and would thus use their existing login credentials.

CSDCAS Evaluation Requirements

CSDCAS requires applicants to request three (3) letters of recommendation, and in order to submit an application. Recommendations do not need to be received in order for an application to go through the verification process.

How It Works

Applicants identify their recommenders while completing the core CSDCAS application (i.e., the common elements viewable by all designations submitted by an applicant) and provide recommenders’ email addresses, a suggested deadline date, and a note. The deadline serves as a suggested completion date for the recommender, and if the date passes, it will not stop the recommender from completing the form.

Applicants should notify recommenders in advance that a recommendation request will be forthcoming. Once this information is collected, recommenders will receive a link to the Letters by Liaison Evaluator Portal to create an account or to login with existing credentials. In the portal, a list will notify the evaluator of the status of requested evaluations (e.g., completed, declined).

There is a required standard recommender form for each applicant, but evaluators will also have the option to upload a personalized letter.

Note: Any letters submitted through the evaluator portal will be viewable by all programs to which the student applies. If a program would like to receive personalized letters specific to its review, the program will need to include instructions on its program page(s) on how evaluators can submit those designation-specific materials. Programs receiving recommendation letters outside of the portal can easily scan the letter into WebAdMIT and the applicant’s file.
