When and how do I upload the required "executive letter"?

The letter itself may not be uploaded until after you hit the “Submit Report” button in the Reporting Tool. PDF format is required. Please see the “Submission Process” on the STARS website for more details.

Acquiring a letter from a high-ranking executive such as a President or Chancellor may take some time. We encourage participants to notify the individual (or their office) about this submission requirement several months prior to the anticipated date of submission.

If you are ready to submit and are waiting for the executive letter, you may upload a placeholder letter and proceed with the submission. You will have an opportunity to upload the actual signed letter during the collaborative review and revision process to follow.
