Certified Copies of Diplomas and/or Apostille

The Office of the Registrar can notarize a copy of your diploma at no additional charge. Those graduates requesting diplomas for employment/educational purposes overseas may need to investigate what authentication may be required by the country where the diploma will be presented.

Should any country requiring a diploma also require an apostille, we can forward your notarized copy of diploma to the Rhode Island Secretary of State's office. If you are pursuing this option, please ensure that you include a check in the amount of $5.00 per document made payable to the Secretary of State of Rhode Island along with a legible copy of your diploma. In addition, kindly include a letter along with your request with your date of birth, dates of attendance, degree received, and for which nation the apostille is needed. You will also need to provide an address to where you would like the documents to be sent so this info can be provided to the Secretary of State's Office.

NOTE: The Office of the Registrar does NOT keep copies of your diploma. You should always maintain your original diploma. You MUST provide a legible copy of it when making your request for certification and/or apostille OR order a replacement diploma by following the instructions in the section above.
