Winthrop University: Telecommuting Application

Telecommuting Application

The employee will need to complete the Adobe Telecommuting Application below. The process is completely electronic, so you will need to save the form first to your computer as an Adobe pdf file, complete the employee section, and email the pdf to your supervisor.  If you encounter issues with the file, please reach out to and a blank adobe form can be emailed to you.

In order to complete the employee section, the employee must sign the form electronically. If you do not already have an e-signature, follow the Digital ID instructions to create one when trying to sign the application.
