Do you need to apostille Elementary School Transcripts?
We handle Elementary School transcripts issued from all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For countries that are not members of the Hague Apostille Convention, we offer the option to process these transcripts through the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy or Consulate office.
To check whether your country is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you can visit this link: Hague Apostille.
Aside from Elementary School transcripts, we also provide apostille services for diplomas issued by Middle Schools, High Schools, Colleges, Universities, and Trade Schools. Before we can begin processing your transcript, please follow the three steps outlined below.
Step #1: Contact the Elementary school and inform them that you require the transcripts to be signed and notarized by an official from the school. This is typically the school Principal. If the school does not have a notary on staff, a traveling notary can visit the school and meet with the Principal. You can search online and arrange for a traveling notary service to visit the school at a convenient time. It’s worth noting that most notaries are not well-versed in authenticating a transcript for another country, so it is best to leave the apostille process to us. The notary must adhere to the proper notarial laws of their State for the State office to authenticate the documents.
Step #2: Once you receive the notarized transcript, verify that it has been signed and notarized. Some schools may sign and notarize the back of the transcript, while others have enough space to do so on the front. The documents should contain the original signature and printed name of the Principal, along with the notary’s name, signature, date of notarization, notarial wording, and stamp. Please be aware that some schools may draft a color letter and attach it to the transcript. The cover letter must be signed and notarized by the Principal as well.
Step #3: The final step is to mail the signed and notarized transcript to our office for processing. We have provided an order form and credit card authorization form for each U.S. State and the District of Columbia. You can find the forms at this link: Apostille Order Forms. For the most up-to-date information on processing time and availability, please contact our office.
Please Note: We can only assist with documents originating from or notarized within the United States for use in another country. If the transcripts originates from another country, you will need to contact the competent authority in that country for assistance.
Obtaining an apostille on Elementary School Transcripts 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!
