An Apostille is a certification issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that verifies the authenticity of a public document being presented to a foreign country that is a signatory to the Hague Convention of 1961. Students who wish to study or work outside of the United States may be required to have their educational credentials validated through the Apostille process.

Upon request, the¬†University Registrar's Office¬†will authenticate, notarize, and make available the Apostille process to any student who may need to have her/his diploma and/or official transcript certified. To request an Apostille, please complete and return an Apostille Process Request form to the registrar’s office.

For more information on the Apostille process in Massachusetts, please visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth's webpage.
