Use Docusign

 

DocuSign is a secure, paperless alternative for official document signatures. Digital document signatures help reduce the carbon footprint by reducing the amount of paper required, plus it is faster than snail mail and eliminates the hassle of finding a fax machine. DocuSign makes keeping copies as easy as saving on your computer, and it can be used on any device.

Info! All UND students, faculty, and staff have a DocuSign account by default, and accounts do not need to be manually created by the user.
