The lists of school districts is continuously growing and we expect that they will soon stop accepting paper copies of your references.
The initial cost of uploading your reference file to either one of these systems is $20.00 each. The fee for initially uploading your references to both systems is $30.00. Uploading allows access to all participating school districts using these systems. After an initial upload of your reference file, any new references to be scanned and uploaded will have a $3.00 fee per upload/per system. (Please see a CDC staff member if any other school district or graduate school requires electronic references). The fee for mailing a reference file has not changed. It will remain at $3.00 for each set of references mailed.
A new Reference File Request Form is available for your use if you would like your reference file scanned into the system.
