Certifications, Authentications, and Apostille for Transcript

The first step is for you to order your transcripts online. Please go to http://www.k-state.edu/transcripts for transcript information and ordering. Be sure to choose the paper transcript option when requesting a notarized transcript for Certification, Authentication, or Apostille. Please indicate on the electronic request form in the “Special Instructions Section” that the transcript needs to be NOTARIZED for the Certification, Authentication, or Apostille process. We will print the transcript(s) and notarize and send to you. Transcript requests are processed in one to two days upon receipt.

When you receive the notarized transcript, send by check $7.50 per official document with the notarized transcript to the address below for the completion of the Certification Authentication or Apostille. You may also contact the Office of Secretary of State and make arrangements for credit card payment.
