Campus Credential Service
Some college and university career offices have preprinted forms to assist with collecting recommendations from professors and other recommenders. If you are using a campus credential service to have your letters of recommendation sent to LSAC, you must still submit your LSAC Letter of Recommendation Form(s) to the service. There must be one LOR Form for each recommender letter your campus service will be sending. This is true even if the credential service issues a "packet" with several recommenders included in that packet. Be certain they understand that each Letter of Recommendation Form you give them must be submitted with the packet to LSAC.
When identifying your recommenders on your LSAC account, do not enter the name and address of your campus credential service. Instead, enter the name and contact information for each of the individual recommenders on file at the campus credential service from whom you wish to have letters submitted to LSAC. The e-mail or mailing address you provide for your recommender will be used by LSAC to send a confirmation of receipt to the recommender.
In the event that a particular recommender on file in the credential service office is no longer associated with the institution, or has passed away, you should still enter the recommender's name on your LOR Form, but contact the credential service office to verify what e-mail or mailing address you should enter on your form. LSAC will send a confirmation of receipt to the campus credential service.
