The Office of Legal Affairs is able to provide notary services for our faculty, staff, and students.

If you are in need of notary services, please make an appointment by e-mailing: Please state what type of document or article needs notarizing in your e-mail. Our office also offers open office hours for notary services every Wednesday from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM and from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. During the open office hours, please note that University-related business must take precedence.

In order for our office to notarize a document, you must bring with you a current, government-issued photo identification and a copy of your unedited document. The notary must be able to clearly validate your identify. It may be beneficial to bring a second copy of your document with you to your appointment.

Our office does not provide online or electronic notarizations, nor apostille services, and we are unable to notarize original documents. If you require online or electronic notarizations, the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts office offers these services to the general public. Information is available at the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts website, on their "Help Center" webpage, under the "Notary" tab. Apostille services should be directed to Flyer Student Services.

If you are unable to make an appointment with a notary in our office during our operating hours, your personal bank, credit union, or local Bureau of Motor Vehicles may have personnel available to provide notary services.
