Step 3: Accept your HFS Contract

- Type your name to electronically sign the HFS Contract.
- Click the ‘Accept Contract’ button.
Be sure to read the fine print for your HFS Contract before you accept - once you have accepted the HFS Contract, you are legally bound to that contract for the specified semester(s). You may not cancel the contract after it has been accepted.
