DocuSign electronic forms
Graduate faculty and graduate program directors are now required to use DocuSign Powerforms. DocuSign is an application designed to collect and manage digital signatures for the Graduate School's forms. Powerforms allow graduate faculty and program directors to complete necessary forms and circulate for signatures 100% digitally.
For each form linked below, a pdf version is provided solely as an instructional template for preparing the DocuSign version, not as an alternative form of submission. Please submit all forms using DocuSign.
Before using Powerforms, please read through the DocuSign instructions to understand how to initiate and complete your form. If you have questions about the process or encounter issues with the DocuSign forms, please contact (775) 784-6869 or email at email@example.com.
