If you have completed your degree in Russia, you must submit a copy of the official government-granted degree certificate and transcript of records (приложение к диплому). The original documents must be verified with an apostille by the authorized body of education of the Russian Federation in your region (Федеральная служба по надзору в сфере образования и науки (Рособрнадзор)). Copies of the apostille-verified original documents must then be officially certified by a notary public. The copies submitted must carry the notary public’s original stamp on each page and the signature of the certifying officer.
If you have not yet graduated, you must submit a copy of your official transcript of records. The transcript of records must be officially certified either by the awarding institution or a notary public.
