AUTHENTICATION OF DOCUMENTS AND APOSTILLE REQUESTS

It has become more common for document authentication and apostille requests to be required in international transactions (transferring to an international university, applying for employment outside of the United States).  Authentication certification verifies that the Notary Public notarizing a copy of your transcript or diploma is on record with the CT Secretary of the State's Office.

If you need to have your transcript and/or diploma prepared for document Authentication or Apostille, please submit your request through Parchment. You may select Apostille Transcript as your ordering option and the process allows you to upload a copy of the document. Upon receipt of the order, the Registrar’s Office will print the documents, sign, and notarize, if required. The Registrar’s Office will then mail the documents where specified. You may submit payment for this process through Parchment.

Upon receipt of these documents, you must then send these documents to the Secretary of the State's Office, State of Connecticut, along with an Authentication Order Form (available at the Secretary of the State's website) and the appropriate Authentication Services fees. Below is the link to the Secretary of the State's Office, where you can find additional information.
