Instructions for Electronically Signing EDD Forms
1) Download the form and save it in your computer
2) In the form, type information in each box.
3) Once completed, click on the signature button and a pop up will open.
4) Within the pop up, do the following:
a. Select "A new digital ID I want to create now" and click "Next"
b. Select New PKCS#12 Digital ID File, and click "Next"
c. Type your name, email address, and select your country/region. The organizational unit and organization name is not required for the creation of your digital ID. When you certify or sign a document, the name appears in the Signatures panel and in the signature field.
d. Choose 1024-bit RSA
e. Choose Digital Signatures and Data Encryption. Click "Next"
f. Specify a filename and location for the digital ID file (most save on desktop)
g. Type a password; passwords are case-sensitive, must contain at least six characters, and may not contain double quotation marks or the following characters: ! @ # $ % ^ & * , | \ ; < > _. Type the same password in both the Password and Confirm Password boxes.
h. Click Finish
Forms can be saved as many times just like a word document while filling in the information. Once completed, the forms can be sent to any one as attachments (for example to committee members) who will also sign them electronically, save, and send back via email as attachments.
Once ready to turn in to Educational Leadership Doctoral Program Office or to Graduate Studies, just attach the forms to an email and send.
This process provides a logistical and efficient method to deliver EDD forms to intended parties.
