In order to request an Apostille for a copy of your transcript or a certification of graduation you will need to submit several items in addition to your Amherst request for the document.  You can find information on the requirements as outlined by the office of the Massachusetts Secretary of State here

Once you have gathered your materials you will need to send them, along with your request, to this office.  We will produce a coverletter attested by a notary public and forward the packet to the office of the Secretary of State. 

Processing time within the office is generally 48 hours for this service.

Any questions can be directed to Stacey Cooney at or (413) 542-5068.
