DocuSign offers the ability to execute Electronic Notarial Acts using DocuSign Signature. These Electronic Notarial Acts emulate the core aspects of a traditional paper/human Notarial Act.

Note: if you do not comply with legal requirements for an electronic signature, you can lose your notary license.


Benefits of Remote Electric Notary Sessions

Notaries in Florida (and other select jurisdictions) can use DocuSign eNotary to electronically witness and authenticate the execution of documents. Notaries must have a DocuSign account (currently approved for all NSU faculty and staff) and the electronic notary profile in DocuSign must be set up before DocuSign can be used to notarize documents.

An electronic notary seal is created along with a notarial journal in DocuSign to record the electronic notary sessions, and the details are also captured on the Certificate of Completion of each DocuSign transaction.

DocuSign eNotary Benefits:

  • It offers a secure and safe process, an audit trail, and time savings.
