Apostille Requests

Berklee Online students: Do not submit this form. Please contact registrar@online.berklee.edu.

What is an apostille?

An apostille is a certification that guarantees the authenticity of a U.S. document when it is used outside of the U.S.

Some countries require that a Berklee College of Music document have this certification; here is a list of countries that may require this.

Important information can be found on the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth's website.

How much does an apostille cost?

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts charges $6 for each apostille/certification. Note that this fee is per document, not per page.

For a $40 fee, Berklee will provide a prepaid UPS shipping label, with tracking, on your behalf. Students may instead choose to purchase and upload their own UPS, DHL, or FedEx prepaid shipping label.

How long does it take to process an apostille order?

It may take up to six weeks. This process cannot be expedited, so please plan accordingly.
