Notary Service

As a service to UCI students and alumni, the Registrar's Office offers a notary service for official university documents produced by or distributed by the University Registrar.

You may elect to use your own notary. Details on this option are provided below.

What we will notarize

  • Diplomas
  • Official Transcripts
  • Verifications

Only an official academic transcript or verification is eligible for notarization; photocopies or other reproductions are unacceptable.

A copy of your diploma can be notarized, provided that your original diploma is presented at the time the copy is notarized.

How Notarization Works with Registrar Services

When you present your original diploma or have the Registrar's Office issue you an official transcript or verification, the University Registrar will produce and sign a letter attesting to the authenticity of your document. A notary will witness and verify the signing of the attestation by the University Registrar.

What you will leave with upon notarization:

1. Your original diploma brought
    by you to the Registrar's Office.

    The attestation is included on your

Foreign Use of Notarized Documents

The Secretary of State of California provides apostilles or certifications for documents to be used outside the United States. After your documents are notarized at the Registrar's Office, students who still require an apostille or certification for a foreign country or institution should review the California Secretary of State website for instructions on obtaining an apostille or certification.
