How to complete online forms (electronic fillable pdfs)

It is recommended that students download Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to fill/sign forms. This is a free program. Click here to download Adobe Acrobat Reader.  Please note, when downloading forms the preferred browser is Google Chrome. Save the placement forms to your local hard drive to fully edit the electronic fillable PDFs.  If using a Mac,  please Print to PDF and then save the document to your computer once you have completed the electronic form.
