Information About Our Forms

For convenience and efficiency, all of our downloadable forms have been converted to a "fillable" format. Just type in the fields and/or add checks to boxes, and make sure you sign and date where necessary.

If the form does not appear to be fillable, look for an option at the top of your browser to open the document in a different viewer. It should be fillable then. If you encounter any issues please contact registrationservices@wcl.american.edu and we will be happy to assist you.

If you have forms for our office to complete on your behalf please fill out, sign, and date your portion and email the form to us along with your AU ID number and whether you'd like the form emailed back to you, mailed or faxed (provide address or fax number) or available for pickup in our office.
