Forms Requiring a Signature
When your form requires a physical signature, PDF is the best format. Please contact ITS Training at ITStraining@umflint.eduor 810-762-3123 for assistance to create a PDF which allows the information to be typed in, and then the form can be printed and signed.
If your form requires more advanced capabilities, the ITS Webmaster will be able to guide you with creating a web-based information-gathering system. You can contact the Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling ITS at 810-762-3123.
