To request an apostille, please send the following to the Office of the Registrar:

  • A written request for an apostille signed by the student
  • Any documents for which the student would like to receive an apostille
  • A self-addressed, stamped envelope so that the documents can be sent back to the student once they have been processed
; and
  • Payment of $6 for each document that requires an apostille. Payment can be in the form of a check or international money order, made out to "The Commonwealth of Massachusetts." If you are bringing the document(s) to the Office of the Registrar, payment can also be made in cash.

Please be advised that this process takes three to four weeks from the date we receive the request. If a self-addressed, stamped envelope is not included, the document(s) will be sent by regular mail.

All requests for an apostille should be sent to:
