Digital Signature on recommendation letters allowed?

Hi folks,

Due to the Covid-19 situation, my recommenders don’t have access to a printer at home. Can we submit the recommendation letter with e-signature such as Docusign, etc.?

Is there any official guidance/document regarding acceptability of signatures from Tech Nation?


Yes it is. As you know, you have to send soft copy of application by uploading all of your documents, printing really does not make much sense anyway.

Thanks so much! Will do a docusign then.

@archr as a side note, you can also ask them to sign the doc (there is option in Adobe PDF reader, also from google docs, and Mac preview application)
I used all of the above services as I didn’t have docusign premium access.


Hi @archr,
Additionally to the comments above, please, read this article:

I hope this article will make the overall process clearer.
