Appointment Letter Signatures

Q: Can an email acknowledgement serve as a signature on an appointment letter?

A: No.

Appointment letters must be signed by both the employee and the supervisor, director or dean. We cannot accept an email acknowledgement in lieu of a signature. Electronic signatures, such as those obtained through Adobe or DocuSign, are acceptable for appointment letters.
