Apostille


Documents intended for use in a foreign country often require authentication or legalization with an Apostille or other certificate. This process certifies the authenticity of the signature and the capacity in which the notary or other public official who signed the document has acted. The signature and seal on the document will be verified through official records on file with the Colorado Secretary of State and they will issue an apostille for the document.

To obtain an apostille of a diploma:

Contact graduation@unco.edu or 970-351-2231, option 3.

You may obtain an apostille of a diploma by sending your request to the Office of the Registrar. Your request must include:

  • the number of copies you are ordering
  • your name as it appears on your UNC academic records
  • address where the diploma(s) is to be sent
  • your Bear number or last four digits of your social security number
  • daytime telephone
  • notarized signature

If you earned more than one degree, please indicate the degree for which you you are requesting the diploma be reissued.

Click here for the request form.

Your request can also be processed in person or by contacting the Graduation Office at (970) 351-2231, option 3. To order over the phone a student must provide information to authenticate identity.

Apostille diplomas bear the statement "Reissued Diploma" and are signed by the current signatories.

The diploma must be ordered from our vendor and then shipped back to UNC to start the apostille process. Send UNC a check, made out to the State of Colorado, for the $5.00 processing fee. Once the diploma and check have been received, UNC will prepare the documents to be apostilled.

To obtain an apostille of a transcript:

Once UNC has prepared the documents, you have the following two options:

    • UNC will submit the documents in a #10 envelope to the Secretary of State. Once the apostille is complete, the Secretary of State will return the documents to UNC and we will forward them to the address indicated by you. This process may take up to 3 weeks. Currently there is a $5.00 processing fee charged by the State of Colorado, however, please visit www.sos.state.co.us for updated fee information before ordering.
    • You may choose to hand carry the documentation prepared by the Office of the Registrar to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office in Denver if you need quicker service or need the document to remain unfolded. The Secretary of State considers this an “Expedited Service”, for which they charge a fee. Check the www.sos.state.co.us website for their current fee for this process.
