Getting Started with DocuSign

Take a quick tour to see how DocuSign works

For Signers

UCSC maintains strict controls on signing authority, such that only certain persons at the university are allowed and have the authority to sign contracts and other documents that legally bind the Institute. If in the course of your work at UCSC you are asked by someone, inside or outside the university, to sign a contract or legal document, you should contact the Office of General Counsel to determine if you have appropriate authority.

For Senders

Uploading completed campus PDFs is possible. Some PDF formats like the post-travel expense may require export the completed PDF to a TIFF file.

DocuSign Accessibility

For information on the current state of DocuSign's conformance with accessibility standards, read the Docusign Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) for signers and senders.

DocuSign’s ability to provide an accessible document to signers is dependent on senders. It is the responsibility of senders to follow accessibility guidelines with DocuSign.

DocuSign makes the signing experience accessible to users by supporting:

  • Screen reader usage which allows visually impaired users to follow the necessary guidelines to sign a document.
  • High contrast mode in all operating systems which allows colorblind users to have a better experience while signing a document.
  • Keyboard-only usage to ensure that any action can be executed using only this device.
