What is an Apostille?

An apostille is the legalization of a document for international use under the terms of the Hague Convention.

UIC graduates who plan to work or further their education abroad may need to authenticate their degree(s) and transcripts with an apostille.

It is imperative that you verify the specific documents and authentication required by the receiving country. More information regarding authentication of American academic credentials for use abroad is available at the U.S. Department of State website. For those countries that do not recognize the Hague Convention or that do not accept the apostille, the U.S. Department of State has an Office of Authentications which can provide a federal authentication.
