What is an Apostille?

Foreign countries may request that individuals who have completed degrees outside that country are required to have their degrees certified with an Apostille. An Apostille is a special seal applied by an authority to certify that a document is a true copy of an original. This can be used whenever a copy of an official document from another country is needed. The Registrar’s office can process your transcript or diploma and obtain the Apostille seal from the state of Arkansas. For details on the Arkansas Apostille and process, please visit the¬†Arkansas Secretary of State – Business/Commercial Services¬†website.
