What is the Career Center Letter of Reference (LOR) service?
The Letter of Reference (LOR) Service allows UCLA undergraduate, graduate students
and alumni (who pay an annual activation fee) to store their
letters of reference for graduate and professional school programs with our department.
Since these letters are solely for the purpose of supporting your application to graduate
and professional programs, we will ONLY send your letters to admissions offices at
universities and colleges. Since the purpose of this service is to send letters to
multiple graduate and professional schools, we can only accept non-specifically addressed letters.
