Apostille (/əˈpɒstɪl/)

Apostille Basics

An Apostille is a legal document, which is one page in length, and carries a state or country seal.
An Apostille is the highest certification you can request for a document.  

A US document to be submitted to a US agency, US school or the US government DOES NOT require an Apostille.  An Apostille certification makes a document from one country valid in another [provided that both are signatories (i.e., signing members) to the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents)].  See the official list of the Hague Apostille Members.
A US document to be submitted to a US agency, US School or other US administrative body does NOT require an Apostille. 

It will probably require Notarization, however.
