What is a placement file?
A placement file contains documents that detail your educational training, employment history and other experiences that have contributed to your preparation as an educator. At least three professional references (the minimum required by most schools and districts) for employment are also contained in the file.
What if I want to put a transcript in my file?
Request that from the Registrar Department by visiting the Student Services Center on the Toppenish campus or visit http://www.heritage.edu to access information and payment options. Send your transcript either electronically or by mail to your chosen file service.
When should I start a placement file?
You should start the process as soon as you have made the determination that you need a placement file. Please allow enough time to complete your placement file as most items will take time to acquire.
How do I set one up?
Please contact Interfolio to get started on your portfolio today! For information regarding how to acquire letters from your references and discuss timeliness and pricing options, feel free to call the toll free customer service line number that is listed at the bottom right on their website page. Customer service is available Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time) or you can email Interfolio (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance.
I graduated before 2008 and I think I have a placement file at Heritage University, is it still there?
In 2008, Heritage University partnered with Interfolio, a third party credential management service. Please contact our office if you think you have a placement file in our vault. However, please be aware that we purged files after five (5) years of inactivity. In the case that your file was purged, you will need to start new with Interfolio.
To inquire if your file is a Heritage University, please contact us at email@example.com. Include your first and last name(s) and your birth date. If your file is in our office, we will direct you to download the transfer form and scan, email or FAX (509-865-8659) to our office.
After receiving your transfer form we will send your documents to the placement file service of oyour choice. Please allow at least 24 hours of response time from the Office of Career Services.
Can I see the placement file contents before it is sent over to Interfolio?
If the file is closed, it is still considered a confidential collection of documents; therefore, we cannot share the contents of the file with the student.
How long will it take to process my paperwork from Heritage University to Interfolio?
Once your transfer paperwork has been received allow at least two weeks for mail delivery and for Interfolio to process your information into their system. Please note this is an estimated timeline.
