Georgetown University Registrar | Apostille Apostille

Apostille is a French word which means a certification. It is commonly used in English to refer to the legalisation of a document for international use under the terms of the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents. A document which has been certified with a conformant apostille is accepted for legal use in all the nations that have signed the Hague Convention.

The University Registrar currently makes the following general documents available for the apostille process: transcripts, enrollment/degree certification, and replacement diplomas. If you require this service, please note details for your apostille on your signed documents request and submit it to the attention of the University Registrar. Given the additional complexity of notarization, please allow one week for processing transcripts and certifications, and up to six weeks for replacement diplomas.

Please note: Georgetown University Staff cannot advise requestors on the international apostille process, nor can staff perform steps in the apostille process beyond production and notarization of the above documents. It is your responsibility to follow the procedures outlined by the Department of State Office of Authentications.
