Digital Signature Standard

Updated March 25, 2021

Northwestern has partnered with DocuSign to provide the University with a standard digital signature solution. DocuSign is a digital signature solution designed to improve workflow for signing and approving official documents in an efficient and secure way, eliminating the need to transfer important documents in need of signature via email, fax, or US Mail.   

If your department or school has a need to utilize DocuSign, or would like to learn more about this new process, please visit the DocuSign – eSignatures webpage.

The University has recently made the decision to establish DocuSign as our digital signature standard platform.  We will be establishing a campus agreement which will allow all departments and schools to utilize the technology on documents that require a formal digital signature.  An implementation plan is being developed; more information will be sent out soon.  If you have any questions, please contact Keith Paddy at
