An electronically filed tax return does not have an actual signature on page 2 of the Form 1040, the school should know that.

If you are required to give them a signed Form 1040 then download a PDF of the 2021 federal tax return. Print the Form 1040, sign and date the return on page 2 of the 1040.

Will they take this?  If you efiled, In the PDF of your TurboTax return, the last page of the federal return should be an "electronic postmark" that shows your name, Social Security number, the date and time that you e-filed the return, and the date that the IRS accepted it.
