Log in to Adobe Sign

  1. Using this link, log in to Adobe Sign.

    1. Use your UVU email to sign in. When you tab to or click on the password field, you should be redirected to UVU’s authentication page.

      1. If the redirection fails, try clicking on the Adobe ID button under the following message: Already have an Adobe ID?.

    2. If you are asked if this is a personal or company/school account as part of the authentication process, select Company or School Account and finish logging in.

  2. Once logged in, verify that the UVU logo and POWERED BY Adobe Sign are in the top left of the screen.

    1. If you do not see the UVU logo and POWERED BY Adobe Sign, please contact the Service Desk to help you get logged in to Adobe Sign.

Request Recipient Signatures

  1. On the Adobe Sign home screen, click Request signatures. It is the blue button in the center of the home screen page.

    To Request Signatures, click on the Request signatures button on the homepage.
  2. On the next page titled Get documents signed, enter the emails of all the recipients who need to interact with the form.

    1. If you need a certain amount of signatures, you need to enter all the emails as a recipient.

    2. You can change the type of recipient by selecting the drop-down next to the recipient email. It is recommended to only use signer, form filler, or approver for the recipients as needed.

    3. If you need a person to receive a copy that is not a recipient, add their email in the CC section.

  3. Add your PDF in the file section by dragging the PDF from your computer to the Files box in Adobe Sign.

    Drag and drop the desired documents into the Files box to attach them to this request.
  4. Under the Message section, customize the message to your recipients.

    1. By default, the agreement name will be the name of the first file added. If you would like a better title than the form name, change it as needed.

    2. If needed, edit the default message to create a more personalized message for your recipients.
