An apostille is a form of authentication issued to documents for use in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. The Office of the Secretary of State provides apostille and authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals on documents that will be used overseas. An apostille is required as part of the process for the Dichiarazione di Valore.


The Apostille is the first step towards obtaining a Dichiarazione di Valore, and it is issued through the Delaware Secretary's of State Office. 

In order to request the Apostille, you must provide the following documentation to the JCU Office of the Registrar: 

  1. Original Diploma
  2. Original, official hard copy transcripts: To request an official, hard copy transcript, please follow the instructions here. When requesting the transcript, please indicate "JCU Registrar's Office | Issued for Apostille request" on the recipient section of the request form.
  3. Cover letter: in which you specify your name, return address, email address, and phone number (in case they need to contact you for clarifications). Your credit card information should also be specified in the cover letter (see below).
  4. $30.00 for the Apostille on both Diploma and transcriptsThis payment is not made to John Cabot University. Your payment will be processed by the Secretary of State via Credit Card. To process your payment you will have to provide: card number, CVV2 (the 3/4 digit security number at the back of the card), name/address of cardholder, and expiration date.
