  • Sometimes students are asked to present a certified and notarized copy of a document. The Registrar’s Office can provide certification and notarization free of charge for any documents issued by our office, such as transcripts, enrollment verifications, and diplomas,including photocopies of your original diploma.

    Certification is the addition by our office of a signed statement to the document indicating that it is an original document (or a true and correct copy) issued by the university.

    Notarization is a process in which a notary watches us sign the statement and then places an official stamp or seal near the signature. This tells the recipient of the document that a representative of The New School signed the statement and that the document is authentic.

    Apostille is the authentication of a document by the State Department. If you are an international student and/or plan to work outside the United States, you may need to have your documents legally recognized by a foreign country in order to be used there. In many countries, this is done by acquiring an apostille.

    If you have any questions about the certification, notarization, and/or apostille process, please contact us and ask for assistance from Jesenia Valderrama.
