Notary Public Services


A valid government issued identification card with photograph and signature is required for all notary public services offered at the UT Arlington Office of the Registrar. A student ID does not meet this requirement. Examples of acceptable identification are:

  • A valid state issued driver's license or identification card.
  • A valid government issued passport. U.S. and international passports are acceptable.
  • A valid U.S. military ID


Notary services are available to currently enrolled students, graduates or faculty and staff of UT Arlington.

Notary Services in the Office of Registrar are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please fill out the Notary Request Form. You can request to have your document to be mailed or picked up. If you choose the pickup option, you will receive an email to set an appointment once the document is ready for pickup. Appointments will need to be made with 24-hour advance notice. Appointments can be set for times between 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday (excluding weekends and university holidays).

  • Signer(s) must appear in person.
  • Signer(s) must provide a valid government issued identification.
  • Documents must be unsigned.
  • Documents will be signed and dated on the date of notarization.
  • Signer(s) must sign the notary journal, provide full name, current mailing address and may be asked to provide a right-hand thumbprint.
  • There is no fee charged for students or faculty for notary public services through the Office of the Registrar at UT Arlington.

If you will be presenting your diploma(s) and/or official transcripts to a foreign country, then the Office of the Registrar at UT Arlington will provide notarized letters of authentication for UT Arlington diplomas and official transcripts.

Once you have received these letters from the UT Arlington Office of the Registrar, you will need to contact the Office of the Texas Secretary of State to obtain an apostille. UT Arlington no longer provides documents to the Texas Secretary of State for apostille purposes. The Texas Secretary of State is the official entity which issues the apostille for documents originating in Texas, and the requestor must provide the documents and fees to that agency.
