Graduate Student Request for Apostille

An apostille is a special certification that guarantees the authenticity of a U.S. document, i.e., a diploma, a transcript, and so on, when they are used outside of the U.S. Some countries require that a Berklee diploma has this authentication; see a list of countries that may require this

Please note that U.S.-based students who are planning on staying in the U.S. do not need an apostille. You can find more information on the Massachusetts government website.

By providing the following information, you formally request apostilles to be issued for your diploma and transcript. In addition to filling out the webform below, please see the instructions regarding your diploma. Once copies of the documents are received, the processing time will be approximately six–eight weeks.

A fee of $25 covers all processing fees for the apostilles, plus expedited courier service to your mailing address.
