Conducting Your Review Through ByCommittee

If your institution uses ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure to conduct its review process online, you will be asked to submit a packet of review materials via Interfolio’s ByCommittee service.

Before you begin, an administrator will create a case for you that includes instructions for submitting your packet with all the required documents and forms.

The administrator will notify you that your case is ready via email.

The Notification Email:

Notification Email

When you select “View Case” in this email you will be prompted to create a password that generates the Interfolio account you will use to collect and submit materials for your packet.

If you already have an Interfolio account, the "View Case" button will take you to your account dashboard.
