Apostille Service for Transcripts

The registrar’s office is willing to submit an apostille request on the student’s behalf when needed. Transcripts needing an apostille are notarized on campus and then submitted to the Illinois Secretary of State for certification. Additional information can be found below.

Because the apostille requires special handling, transcripts needing the apostille cannot be requested through our online portal. To request a transcript with apostille, complete both a Transcript Request Form as well as the Application for Apostille and submit both forms via mail to the registrar’s office. Include a check for $7.50 payable to Garrett-Evangelical, a check for $2.00 payable to Secretary of State, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. A pre-paid Express Mail, Priority Mail, FedEx, or UPS envelope may also be used. These may be addressed directly to the intended recipient.
