The University of Illinois uses Adobe Sign for e-signatures. Adobe Sign is a digital signature application that allows users to securely sign, initial, and enter other information on an electronic document rather than a physical copy. High use forms have already begun to be incorporated into Adobe Sign, with more forms being added weekly.

Adobe Sign is an electronic signature application that allows users to securely sign, initial, and enter other information on an electronic document rather than a physical copy. If you like you can preview the signing experience. Signing is one the main functions of Adobe Sign. Anyone can sign via an email link on any web browser on their computer or using their mobile device. If you have an Adobe Sign account, you can also sign using the “Adobe Sign manager” iOS or Android native app. You can also initiate signing from the Manage page. Signing is also built into the “Fill & Sign” process. Adobe Sign supports the latest web browsers on smartphones and tablets that run the iOS or Android operating systems.
Adobe Sign is a lot more than just an e-signature tool though! Please check out our Adobe Sign Tutorials article to check out features like bulk send, self-service webforms, advanced routing options, and more.
Please visit the University's eSignature page for full Terms of Service, Frequently Asked Questions, and relevant policies.
University employees have default user access to sign documents in Adobe Sign. External users can sign documents as well without the need for an Adobe Sign account.
First, check to see that your unit already has an approved group. If a group exists, contact your appointed Group Admin to gain access to send documents (agreements) out for signature.
If your unit does not yet have a group, coordinate with a supervisor to contact your USC.
Creating a Group (Unit Security Contact approval required)
A USC can register a unit/department for an Adobe Sign group by completing the Adobe Sign Access Request form: https://go.uillinois.edu/esignaccess.
Only one Access Request form is needed per group. In general we recommend that the USC nominates a Group Admin from within the group so the group can autonomously provision sending privileges once approved. If a USC wants to act as Group Admin, their backup USC must complete the Access Request form.
