You may request a notarized replacement diploma by indicating at the time of your order. If you are applying for a job or attending school overseas, you may need your diploma notarized. However, you may not want a notarized diploma for displaying, since the notary seal on the back of the document may bleed through to the front.
Notarization is generally recognized in the U.S. while an apostille is common in other countries. If you need your diploma authenticated with an apostille, you must send the notarized diploma to the Colorado Secretary of State after receiving it from our office. Visit the Secretary of State online for instructions and fee information.
If you are presenting your document overseas, you may want to check whether the institution or company will accept notarization alone or if the apostille is also required.
