Notarizations & Apostilles

Notarizations and Apostilles are a means through which a diploma or transcript is vouched for its authenticity. Notarizations can be performed by the Office of the University Registrar.

What can be notarized?

  • Diplomas The Office of the University Registrar can notarize a diploma or an image of a diploma that has been scanned or faxed. First and foremost, the student should inquire with the agency seeking the verification to determine what would acceptable.
  • Transcripts The Office of the University Registrar can also notarize official transcripts. Please note, we cannot notarize an image of a transcript or an unofficial transcript.

The office charges a $12.00 service fee for each shipment. The student must provide the OUR with either a cashier’s check or money order.

Once a document is notarized, it may then be sent to the Secretary of State for an Apostille seal if this level of authentication is needed. For more information on Apostilles, visit the Secretary of State’s website or call the Secretary of State at 1-866-767-8683.
