Access DocuSign

Note:

  • DocuSign works with your CruzID email address.

How to Get an Account

DocuSign Roles

  • Signers can sign documents, create and save signatures, and track the routing status or workflows in which they are identified as recipients. Log in to DocuSign and create your DocuSign signer account or if someone has sent you something to sign, your account is created during the signing process.
  • Senders can send envelopes to others or be designated by the sender as a 'manage envelope' role and have the ability to change routing for subsequent recipients for a given envelope.
  • Form Masters can create forms (and also have all the access of senders and signers).

To obtain a sender or form master role, submit the interest form and someone will get back to you. The sender on-boarding process takes less than one day. Form master accounts require additional training.

 

Do you have signing authority for contracts or legally binding documents?

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 the General Counsel to determine if you have appropriate authority.
