An apostille is a special certification that guarantees the authenticity of a U.S. document (i.e., a diploma or a transcript) when they are used outside the U.S. Some countries require that a Berklee College of Music diploma has this authentication.
Note: U.S.-based students who are planning to stay in the U.S. do not need an apostille. You can find more information on the Massachusetts government website: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/pre/precom/comidx.htm
By providing the following information, you formally request an apostille to be issued. In addition to filling out this webform, you must upload a copy of any documents for which you would like to receive an apostille (see details below). Once copies of the documents are received, the processing time will be approximately 4-6 weeks. Please note there are currently delays in international shipping times.
Fee Information: The Massachusetts Secretary of State charges $6 USD per document certified. We will touch base regarding fees for certification and shipping cost at the time your request is reviewed.
