Academic Continuity in The Event of an Emergency Situation

How students can submit scanned paper documents using a smartphone

Instructors can have students submit scanned copies of paper documents without needing access to a scanner by using an app on their smartphones. 


  1. Download the Adobe Scan app to your device.
  2. Scan your document using your device. Visit your Adobe Document Cloud in a browser. It is recommended that you use a computer versus a mobile browser for this step. 
  3. Sign in with your Adobe ID (make sure this the same one you used when you downloaded the Adobe Scan app)
  4. Click on Documents > Adobe Scan folder.
