Convalidation Process by State

Don't forget to convalidate your grades to get credit back home!

Dear Students,

If your home country requires convalidation, you will need to obtain an apostille from the Secretary of State of the state in which you are placed.  The process varies a little from state to state so we have compiled information here.  However, as it is very important to get everything right, it is a good idea to go to the website of the Secretary of State for your particular state, and verify the process to obtain an apostille.

Definition of Terms

 

Official Transcript: For a transcript to be official, it should have the school stamp or seal as well as the signature of a school administrator (usually a registrar or principal).  The transcript should include the dates of attendance, grade level, lists of subjects taken with final grades.

Notary: Most schools have a “Notary Public” on school grounds.  This person acts as an official who can verify the identity of the person signing the transcript and their role at the school. The Notary cannot be the same person that signs the transcript.

 

Notary statement stamp: The notary stamp looks something like this:

 

notary-stamp-grades

The Notary will stamp the transcript and fill in their information.  They will sign and date their stamp as well.  Sometimes they will complete this on a separate page, if the state allows.

Verification of Notary: Some states require the county clerk’s office to acknowledge that the Notary who stamped and signed the transcript is a valid Notary.  You can obtain this verification by sending the official transcripts with the notarization to the county clerk’s office and they will attach a notice to your documents.
