Credential Files

Center for Life's Work can keep your recommendation letters on file. Upon request, copies of your credential file are sent to prospective employers or graduate schools. Alumni matriculated students, and those completing state teacher certification requirements through Nazareth University are eligible for this service.

Based on changes related to the hiring process within school districts, the Center for Life's Work will be phasing out credential file services and will assist students with transitioning to a self-managed process.
