Submitting Documents Online

Submitting Documents Online

To best serve and support our students we are now accepting documents online through the DocuSign portal. Please note, all documents must still be printed and physically signed, then uploaded. Scanned images or legible photographs from a smart phone are both acceptable.

What Documents Do I Need To Submit?

To see what documents you need to submit check your To Do list in the Student Center.

  1. Log on the SF State Gateway at See this video for more info!
  2. Under the Student heading, click on “Financial/Jobs,”, then click on “Student Center”
  3. Click “More” under your To Do list on the right side of the page
  4. Click on each item for more information on that step and to download the form
  5. Click “Download Form” to open up the pdf so you can complete the document
  6. Print out and physically sign the document. We cannot accept electronic signatures of any kind


For verification worksheets all sections must be completed. Mark "N/A" or $0 if a field does not apply to you.


Please do not leave any section blank and mark all appropriate boxes. Incomplete documents will need to be resubmitted and will delay the process.
