Do you need to apostille your College diploma?
We can apostille College diplomas issued from all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For countries who are non-members of the Hague Apostille Convention, we can process your diploma through the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy or Consulate office.
In additional to a College diploma, we can also apostille diplomas issued from Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, Universities, Trade Schools, and the GED. Before we can apostille your diploma, you will need to follow the three steps outlined below.
Step #1: The first step is to contact the Registrar’s office at the College and inform them that you need to have your diploma to be signed and notarized. The Registrar with either ask you to mail in the original diploma or e-mail a color copy. Some schools may 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. Because of space limitation on the front of the diploma, the back of the diploma can be signed and notarized.
Step #2: Once you receive your notarized diploma, go ahead and verify that the diploma has been signed and notarized by the Registrar at the College. Some schools will sign and notarize the back of the diploma while others have enough space to use the front. The original signature and the printed name of the Registrar must be on the diploma including the notary’s name, signature, date of notarization, notarial wording, and stamp.
Note: Some Colleges may attach a letter printed on letterhead attesting to the attached diploma.
Step #3: The final step is to mail in your diploma 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.
Obtaining an apostille can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
