Step 1: Click the link from below for the form you wish to use.

Step 2: For each Georgia Tech recipient, please choose the address book icon to ensure the recipient signs in with Georgia Tech credentials. This will allow them to track the progress of your document and access your signature request in DocuSign. For non-Georgia Tech recipients, simply enter the name and email address.

Step 3: When you scroll to the bottom of the screen, you can check a box to create custom email and language for each recipient. If you wish to send the same email to all recipients, uncheck this box. 

Step 4: Once you have entered all requested information, select “SEND.”

After clicking SEND, the document is electronically routed via email to each recipient. You, as the student and first recipient, will complete the form in DocuSign (via the email link you receive or in your DocuSign account).  When you initial the form, you will notice that the other recipients’ names are not included on the form. Don’t worry – they will be automatically filled in when the other recipients open the form.

When all recipients have finished signing the document, everyone will receive a PDF copy of the signed form via email attachment. Save the attachments since DocuSign only retains documents for 6 months.
