After the student submits their Match Rankings Form, the Match Agreement Form must be signed by the student, a parent/guardian, and a school counselor, and uploaded to the Manage page by October 13, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
We understand that many students may not be able to print the Match Agreement Form or obtain signatures from their counselor in-person. Please use one of the methods below to obtain the required signatures, depending on your unique circumstances:
Method #1: Obtain all signatures in writing
- Log in to your Manage page and click on "Download Match Agreement Form" in the upper right corner.
- Print and obtain all signatures in writing*.
- Upload a photo or scanned copy of your signed Match Agreement Form to your Manage page under the "Upload Materials" section.
*Note that this does not have to be in person; you and your counselor can exchange scanned versions or photos of your Match Agreement Form to obtain the required signatures, as long as you both have access to printers.
Method #2: Obtain all signatures electronically
Since the Match Agreement Form is a secured document, you must convert it to a new PDF before you can obtain electronic signatures. After logging in to your Manage page and clicking on "Download Match Agreement Form" in the upper right corner, convert the document to a new PDF using one of these options:
Convert to a new PDF through PDF Printer
Open the PDF and click the printer icon. Under the dropdown Printer menu, select a PDF Printer option (e.g., Microsoft Print to PDF or Adobe PDF), and click “Print”. The file will be electronically "printed" to a new PDF that you can save on your computer.
Convert to a new PDF through an online converter
Upload your file to a free, online PDF converter such as PDF2GO or Online Convert. Alternatively, if you have the Chrome browser, you can upload the PDF to Google Drive, open the document, click the printer icon, and choose “Save as PDF” as the Destination.
Once you have converted to a new PDF using one of the options above, follow these steps:
- Open the new PDF and use the Fill & Sign feature to sign and date the form. A signed signature or a typed signature is acceptable.
- Have your parent/guardian sign and date the PDF.
- Save the PDF and email it to your counselor to fill out the rest of the form, and have them email it back to you.
- Upload your signed Match Agreement Form to your Manage page under the "Upload Materials" section.
Method #3: Obtain signatures both in writing and electronically
If you are unable to obtain all the required signatures on one document, it is acceptable to upload multiple signed documents to your Manage page in the "Upload Materials" section. As long as all three signatures are accounted for across multiple documents, the Match Agreement Form will be considered complete.
For example, you could upload a Match Agreement Form that was signed by you and your parent/guardian in writing, and then also upload a separate Match Agreement Form that was signed by the counselor electronically. Since all three signatures would be accounted for across two documents, the Match Agreement Form would be considered complete.
If none of these methods will work for the student, they should email firstname.lastname@example.org before October 13 to explain their circumstances. We will work with the student to ensure it gets submitted so they can be considered for the Match.
