Sharing your applicant IDs with our office

Once you have a) submitted your Applicant Portfolio (though not necessarily completed your Applicant Coaching Session yet), and b) notified us through submitting the Letter Packet application that ALL of your individual letters of recommendation have been received, office staff will move your Letter Packet application into the ID Submission stage. You will be notified by the Quest Portal system when this change has occurred. Navigate to the Health Professions Letter Packet application in the Quest Portal and click “Start.” Next, select “Application IDs” under “Your Tasks” (see screenshot below).
