Forms & Resources

Find all the forms you need to apply for and manage your financial aid. If you're uncertain whether you should complete any of the forms listed here, please contact us

 

Using DocuSign

All forms for the 2023-24 academic year can be submitted through DocuSign. DocuSign is an application that allows students and parents/guardians to securely complete and sign forms digitally, eliminating the need to print and scan PDF documents.

Email validation is required for all forms. Once all signatures have been submitted, DocuSign forms are routed back to our office and will be attached to your student account. Please allow 1-3 days for your checklist to reflect completed forms.

If you experience issues with any forms, have questions, or would prefer to print, sign, and upload a PDF version of a form instead of using DocuSign, please contact us at (303) 871-4020 or finaid@du.edu.

  • Important DocuSign Instructions and Tips
    Important Tips:
    • All forms require student email validationOnce you enter the student's full name and email address, a code will be emailed to the student (not the parent/guardian, if applicable). Look for "Email Validation" in the subject line. The student will need to copy that code and click on "Resume Signing" to begin completing the form.
    • To submit any form, you will need your DU ID. You can find your DU ID listed at the bottom of every email you receive from Financial Aid. If you aren't sure what your DU ID is, please contact us before submitting any form through DocuSign. Incorrect IDs will cause delays in processing your application.
    • Some forms require both student and parent/guardian signatures. The student will always complete and sign their portion of the form first.
    • If you need to collect additional information or documentation to complete a form, you can click the "Other Actions" button in the upper right corner and select "Finish Later." Return to your form at any time by clicking on the link in your email.
    • All emails from DocuSign will have "DU Financial Aid Office via DocuSign" as the sender.
