Notary/Apostille Information

A student who graduated from Illinois State may order a new undergraduate or graduate diploma using the Diploma Replacement Form found at

If you want notarized copies of your diploma signed by the University Registrar and Notary Public, please indicate so on the Comments: line on the form.

If you want the notarized copies of your diploma to also include an Apostille, you must include the application (link below) or a letter addressed to the Illinois Secretary of State requesting an Apostille on each certified diploma and stating to which country the Apostille will be sent.  Also include a check or money order made payable to the Illinois Secretary of State including $2.00 for each document needing an Apostille.  We provide two notarized copies of the diploma, so $4.00 would be required by the Secretary of State.  Include a pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope with your request to the Secretary of State so that they may mail the notarized diplomas with attached Apostilles to you or a third party.

Please refer to the Illinois Secretary of State Office's guide for further information on certifying documents for foreign use.  Visit and choose Departments, Index, Notary Services and Certify Documents for Foreign Use (I213) to fill out the Application for Authentication or Apostille Certifying Documents for Foreign Use.
