If you provide an email address for your referee, they must complete their reference online.
Once you add a referee, select “Send Email” to notify them about completing their online reference in a protected environment.
Ensure your referee is prepared to use the online form before entering an email address. Enter a business or university email address rather than a personal email address.
They must be familiar with PDF documents and/or scanners. The “Download” button will appear if you save the referee’s information without an email address. It is your responsibility to ensure your referee receives the email and successfully submits their reference to OLSAS.
If your referee does not have an email address, download the form and forward it to them. They must mail it, with their accompanying letter, to OLSAS when complete.
- Only 1 version of the reference (online or paper, not both) can be submitted.
- All references are confidential. Any information provided on your behalf by your chosen referees will be sent only to your chosen universities and will not be made available to you.
Ensure you give your referees sufficient time to complete their reference and submit it to OLSAS by the deadline. You may submit your application before your referees submit their references.
