Georgia Apostille can apostille your US-issued diploma or any other academic document. An apostille on academic records is usually required if you plan to study or work in a foreign country and have completed high school, trade school, college, or university in the United States. If you are going to a country member of the Hague Apostille Convention, your diploma or other academic records will require an apostille. If the country of your destination is not a signee to the Hague Apostille Convention, your diploma will require a different certification process that involves authentication through your State, US Department of State, and the Embassy/Consulate of the country where you are going to.

To start the process of a Diploma authentication, you will first need to contact a Registrar’s office at your school and tell them that you need an original diploma or its certified copy signed and notarized.  If the school takes long to issue a certified copy and you have the original diploma in your possession, you can mail it to your school. If you do that, please make sure you include a self-addressed pre-paid envelope for the school to mail your diploma back to you.  If you don’t want or cannot mail your original diploma to the school, you can order a new one from the school. 

A majority of schools have an in-house public notary who can notarize the signature of your school’s Registrar. If your school does not have a notary, you should arrange for a mobile notary to come to the school and meet with a Registrar. When selecting a mobile notary make sure you choose the one with a lot of experience, a valid license, and knowledge of notarial laws in your state. The most common reason for apostille rejection is incorrect notarization or missing important notarial affidavits. 

Once you have your original diploma or a certified copy notarized, you can mail it to our office for apostille processing. Review your diploma carefully or better email us a copy of it for a professional review by one of our apostille experts. Your diploma should bear a printed name and an original signature of the Registrar, a notarial seal, a printed name and the signature of a notary, the date of the notarial act, and a notarial affidavit if required by your state. Once your diploma is reviewed and approved for processing, please mail it to our office for apostille service.
