Accessing Interfolio for Program Review

What is Interfolio?

To deliver a better experience for Academic Program Review, ANR has teamed up with interfolio.com.  ANR Academics that participate in the merit & promotion process with ANR will upload their review materials to interfolio.

Accessing Interfolio

FIRST TIME USERS - It is extremely important to complete the four steps below to successfully access Interfolio for the first time.


STEP 1 – Open a supported web browser: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge (NOT Internet Explorer)



STEP 2 - Access Interfolio:

  • On ANR Portal, click on your action under the "ANR Academic Program Review." 
  • Click on the blue "Upload your review documents" button.
  • If you are taken to a screen that asks for your email address, please click the option on the right to sign in with "Partner Institution." Tip: Type "agr" into the search button to return University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources.
  • Once you see the correct login screen (UC ANR branded and asks for your username, not email), type in the username and password that you use to log in to ANR Portal.
  • You may be asked to select "University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources" or "Dossier." Always select the UC ANR option in order to access both your own academic program review and the cases that you are being asked to review. The Dossier option takes you to an optional, personal account with Interfolio.
