Howard University Forms
In response to the University’s need for fast and efficient processing of information, intent to implement user–friendly
documents, and growing desire for environmentally sustainable practices, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, in collaboration
with various academic and support areas across the University, have launched this site to enable the sharing and use of electronic
forms and digital signatures.
Using a web–based application, DocuSign, the University has recreated many of its forms (forms will be added periodically) to allow
end–users to electronically fill and sign forms. This capability, not only allows the form to be quickly disbursed to its intended
department or support area, but also allows end–users to save and store all their documentation virtually!
The ultimate goal is to have all of the University’s forms available to be electronically filled and signed, but this process will
take place gradually overtime. Currently all of the forms listed are available using either DocuSign, which offers electronic signing,
or Adobe Reader (for more information and to download, please visit the Adobe Reader site). We will notify you when new forms have been added.
Using the University’s web-based application is easy as 1,2,3!
