To request an Apostille verification, a student should send a signed request to the Randolph-Macon College Registrar’s Office detailing to which document the Apostille should be attached (usually a transcript or diploma) and mentioning the country to which it is being sent.

If the requested Apostille is for a diploma, the student must provide a copy of a diploma as we do not have a copy on file.  We recommend that it be reduced to standard-sized paper.  A copy can be scanned to  We will then verify its authenticity.  If the requested Apostille is for a transcript, please complete the request for an official transcript along with the request for Apostille.

The student should include with the request a payment to Randolph-Macon College in the amount indicated by the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

We prepare the documents and have them notarized. The notarized documents are then sent by RMC, along with a check for the charges, to the Secretary of the Commonwealth with a cover letter explaining what is wanted, including the name of the country in which the Apostille is expected to be used, and enclosing a stamped envelope addressed back to us (We take care of this part.). When the Apostille and original document are received back from Richmond, we send the whole package on to the originally requested address.  The process usually takes three to four weeks.
