Important Note for Student Employees: 

Student employees are currently not provisioned in Adobe Sign as senders, which will cause errors when students attempt to login to Adobe Sign.

For student employees, a faculty or staff member with access to Adobe Sign should initiate the Telecommuter agreement on behalf of a student; the faculty/staff member should list the student employee's CSUCI email address as the telecommuter. Student employees should request their supervisor submit the temporary telecommuter agreement on their behalf. Once the supervisor initiates the agreement, the student employee will receive an email from with a request to "Review & Sign" the agreement without having to login to Adobe Sign. Thank you for your cooperation.
