Notarization Services for Apostille Purposes

Some transcripts and diplomas may need an apostille from the Arizona Secretary of State. An apostille is an additional level of authentication given to a notarized document to certify that the document(s) are true.  The University of Arizona can provide notarization of official transcripts or of your diploma for this purpose.  Before requesting notarization, please check with the agency requesting your document(s) to determine what is required.    

For assistance in obtaining notarized documents for this purpose, please contact Graduation Services to initiate the process.  In your email, include the agency (government, employer, etc.) requesting the items.  

Once the documents are notarized, you will be responsible for submitting the document(s) to the Arizona Secretary of State's Office to request the apostille.  Please confirm in your email to Graduation Services whether you will be picking up your documents in person, or if you will need to have them returned to you via FedEx.
