Apostille Request 

What is an Apostille?

A certification or legalization is generally necessary for documents which leave the United States. Common types of documents which require certification for acceptance into a foreign country include documents for an international adoption, diplomas issued by an American college or university and various types of records and contracts integral to a company which does business in a foreign country.  The Apostille is a specific form of authentication for countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. 

WPI will process apostille requests for diplomas and transcripts. We will certify these documents and forward them to the state, who will affix an apostille and mail the documents back to you.

Apostilles and Certifications of Documents - Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Steps to Certifying a Transcript or Diploma

  • Complete the WPI Apostille Request Form
  • Have your school registrar certify to the record in the presence of a Notary.
  • The Notary Public will then notarize the signature of the school registrar. The notarized school transcript or diploma is then sent to the Secretary of the Commonwealth for the Apostille or Certification.

Fees 

The fee for an Apostille is $6.00 per document. Checks or money orders should be made payable to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the correct amount.  Cash is not recommended because the office cannot refund cash lost in transit.
