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 prepared for document Authentication or apostille, submit your transcript request 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.
