      2. Your referees complete their reference online.
      3. You then allow the completed reference to be shared with the programs you have applied to.

You will be notified when a referee has submitted a reference for you and you can then share this with the institution(s) that you have applied to. Note: The reference is confidential and you will not be able to view the contents.
