Getting Started with DocuSign

DocuSign is an electronic signature tool designed to streamline consent, authorization, enrollment forms, purchase orders, and contract agreements all within a secure digital environment by allowing you to create, send, sign, and track documents from your computer, tablet, or mobile device.

This paperless tool supports NYU’s sustainability mission by reducing our reliance on paper and is available to all NYU administrators, staff, and faculty who have been granted access. At this time, this tool is not intended for pedagogic use.
