Use Adobe Sign to access Sheridan’s Scholarship Plan for Eligible Dependents
As a part of Sheridan’s Adobe Sign project, the Centre for People and Organizational Development (CPOD) is transitioning commonly used forms into Adobe Sign paperless workflows.
Adobe Sign is a cloud-based e-signature service that allows users to send, sign, track and manage signature processes using a browser or mobile device.
The new Adobe Sign process is already available for Sheridan’s Scholarship Plan for Eligible Dependents. Under the scholarship, dependents of Sheridan full-time employees studying in eligible programs have access to reduced tuition rates. COPD encourages those interested in applying for the scholarship to use the Adobe Sign process.
One of the biggest benefits with this new process is the employee/preparer only needs to start the process and complete their portion of the application form; the workflow does the rest. There is no need to forward or drop off any signed forms to Human Resources; the process is completely automated. Dependents/students can complete their portion of the form electronically. With the document centralized on the cloud, the workflow automates the next steps in the process. It even creates an audit trail that’s included with the final signed document.
This is only one of many forms/documents that is part of the Adobe Sign project that is underway. Please stay tuned for more digital process enhancements.
Instructions on how to use the Adobe Sign for the scholarship plan can be found on Sheridan Central, under Professional Development Opportunities | Sheridan Central (sheridancollege.ca). Click open the tab called “Scholarship Plan for Dependents of Sheridan Employees.”
If you have any technical difficulties with Adobe Sign or the workflow process, please contact the IT Service Desk.
