​​​​Lo​​g​​ging In

Your BlueKey username is your @depaul.edu email address. Your BlueKey password is the same as your Campus Connect password. Please visit the DePaul Knowledge Base to learn more.

Logging in to the online forms system is required for a number of reasons:

1) It allows us to verify your identity and legally accept your eSignature on the form

2) It connects the form with some of your student information in Campus Connect and pre-populates some answers do cut down on mistakes and the amount of typing.

3) You can return to view all forms submitted by you by visiting forms.depaul.edu and signing in.

All faculty, staff, and students of DePaul University have a BlueKey account. Please visit the DePaul Knowledge Base to learn more.

If you are from outside of DePaul University and have received an email asking you to approve a form, please see the information in the Co-signer/Approver Questions section below.



Filling Ou​​t ​​a Form

You are correct! By logging in with your BlueKey credentials, some of your student information from Campus Connect is imported into the forms automatically. This helps to avoid incorrect information being submitted and cuts down on the amount of typing you need to do.

If the information that appears automatically is incorrect, you should correct it in Campus Connect first and then submit the form.

Each field on the form is assigned to a specific participant. While the majority of the form must be filled out by the student, some of the information might be assigned to one of the approvers. If you cannot enter information in a blank field or cannot click on a drop-down menu, chances are that you do not need to enter anything there.

Don't worry! If you accidentally leave a field blank that is required to be filled out by you, you will be prevented from moving on to the next step.

Each form has a 45 minute limit. If the form is not submitted within that time frame, you will be logged out and lose your progress.

If you have begun to enter information and are unable to complete the form within that time frame, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Progress". When you are ready to finish entering in the information and submit the form, visit forms.depaul.edu and select "Pending/Draft Forms". You will be brought to a page that lists all of your forms that are being reviewed (Pending) and forms that you saved to complete later (Draft). Click on the "Complete Form" button to resume filling out the form.

Depending on the form, you may be responsible for collecting all of the required signatures on the form. Please note that this will greatly increase the time required for processing your form and we do not advise it.

After you have electronically signed the form, you will be taken to a "Thank you" page indicating that your form has been successfully submitted. Congratuations! There is nothing additional that you need to do to submit the form.

1) Upon submission, an email is automatically sent to the first person that needs to review and sign your form. They will continue to receive reminder emails every two days until they have completed their tasks.

2) Additionally, an email is automatically sent to you confirming the submission of the form. You may keep this for your records.

3) Once the first reviewer/approver has signed off on the form, an email will automatically be sent to the next person who will be reminded every two days until they complete their task. This will continue until everyone required to sign the form has done so.

4) When all persons required to sign the form have done so, you will receive another email informing you that the process is complete.
