DocuSign electronic forms
Students now have the option of using DocuSign Powerforms. DocuSign is an application designed to collect and manage digital signatures for the Graduate School's forms. Powerforms allow students to complete necessary forms and circulate for signatures 100% digitally.
For each form requiring signatures listed below, there is a PDF version listed below the Powerform version. Before initiating a Powerform, it may be helpful to open the PDF version to use as a guide in completing the Powerform.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
