Apostille Information

Notarized diplomas can be ordered with the Duplicate Diplomas Order Form. Notarized diplomas are frequently used as a step for receiving an Apostilled Document. An Apostille confirms that a document is authentic (or apostilled). Apostilles are most often needed by students who are working outside the United States of America and international students. The Apostille process does take some time, both to produce the original document and for you to send and receive your documents from the State of New Mexico. Begin this process as soon as possible.

Note: Still living in Las Cruces? You can order any or all of the following notarized documents in the Educational Services Building on the Las Cruces Campus.
