How To Get A Copy

DocuSign is available to Faculty and Staff at the University of Rochester. DocuSign is licensed per envelope.  Users may purchase the number of envelopes they need. Once purchase is complete, an email will be sent to the user with information to access DocuSign.

An envelope is a document container that you can send to a recipient to sign. An envelope can have one document or many documents. The envelope holds data on the documents to be signed, the signers and other recipients, and the places where signers will sign the documents. Envelopes have statuses (e.g., sent, delivered, completed, voided) and contain information about the sender and timestamps that indicate the progress of the delivery procedure. When a DocuSign envelope is completed, DocuSign automatically generates a Certificate of Completion that details the full audit history of the transaction.


Payment may be made by blue 312 requisition or email (FAO required).

$3.95 per envelope. Add $3.51 for CFR Part 11 and HIPAA compliant envelopes.*

Contact the UR Tech Store. You will need to provide:

  • FAO payment information.
  • User(s) name and email address.
  • Number of envelopes requested.

*Users are required to pay for any envelope usage above purchased amount.
