Education documents being used internationally may require an Apostille (also called a certification or authentication) from the State of Kansas in addition to the University Seal. Students may either obtain an Apostille directly from the State of Kansas Office of the Secretary of State or have the Office of the University Registrar facilitate obtainment of an Apostille.
To have the Office of the University Registrar facilitate obtainment of an Apostille, the following items must be brought to the KU Visitor Center at 1502 Iowa Street, Lawrence, KS.
- The education document(s) requiring an Apostille (diploma, transcript, statement of degree, statement of forthcoming degree)
- A Request for Document Certification Form. The cost of an Apostille is $7.50 per document. https://www.kssos.org/forms/administration/DC.pdf
The Office of the University Registrar will notarize the document(s) and send it to the Secretary of State's Office along with the Request for Document Certification form. The Secretary of State's Office will then mail the document(s) with an Apostille to the address listed on the form.
Note: Notary charges are $5.00 per document and will be billed to your Enroll & Pay portal.
