Do you need to apostille your diploma from a High School, College, or University?
At USA Apostille, Inc. we take the guesswork out of obtaining an apostille on your diploma. We can apostille diplomas issues from all High Schools, Colleges, and Universities. In order to apostille your diploma, it must be signed by the Registrar at the school and notarized. Another word, the Registrar will need to meet with a notary public and certify that the diploma is an original or a true color copy of the original.
You can either have the original diploma signed and notarized or a color copy. This would depend on the requirements of the requesting country and the school. For example, Qatar requests for your original diploma to be signed and notarized. Typically, on the back of the diploma, the registrar would make a statement attesting to its authenticity and sign the diploma in front of the notary. The notary would then add the correct notarial wording and sign/stamp the diploma.
Step #1: The first step is to contact the School’s Registrar and inform the Registrar that you will need the original or a color copy of your diploma to be signed and notarized. The Registrar with either ask you to mail in the original or email a color copy. Some schools request that you purchase a new diploma. If the school does not have a notary on staff, a traveling notary can visit the school and meet with the Registrar. You can search online and arrange for a traveling notary service to visit the school when it’s convenient for the Registrar. Most notaries are unfamiliar with authenticating a diploma for another country so it’s best to leave the apostille process to us. The notary must follow the proper notarial laws of their State in order for the State office to authenticate the diploma.
Step #2: Once you receive your notarized diploma, go ahead and verify that the diploma has been signed and notarized. Some schools will sign and notarize the back of the diploma while others have enough space to use the front. Some schools may draft a signed and notarized letter on school letterhead and attach it to the diploma.
Step #3: The final step is to mail in your transcripts to our office for processing. We have created an order form and credit card authorization form for every US State and the District of Columbia.
Please Note: We can only help you with documents originating from or notarized within the United States and for another country. If your diploma originates from another country, you will need to contact the correct competent authority to assist you in that country.
Obtaining an apostille can be complicated.
