Applicants are responsible for submitting documents that require the appropriate signatures to The Graduate College.

Signature Policy

All forms must have all appropriate signatures. In addition to original (wet) signatures, the following methods of signing are acceptable:

  • printing, signing, scanning, and emailing the form
  • notifying the department in an email from their university's or institution's email account that the committee chair can sign the form on their behalf
  • downloading and digitally signing the form per our instructions using the university's licensed platform (which is currently Adobe Acrobat)*

If this process results in more than one document with signatures, all documents need to be submitted to The Graduate College together.
