How Do I Get a Notarized Letter or Document?

A notarized letter or document is certified by a notary public — a licensed public officer who serves as an impartial witness to the signing of documents and establishes the authenticity of the signatures. A notary's signature and seal are required to authenticate the signature on your letter or legal document.

To verify your identity, the notary will ask you to present a current identifying document with a photograph, physical description and signature, such as a driver's license, military ID or passport. Please do not sign the document in advance. Signatures must be witnessed by the notary.

On campus, the Office of the General Counsel (Marquette's legal staff) can notarize documents. Please call (414) 288-7343 to schedule an appointment to ensure that a notary is available to assist you.

In addition, banks, credit unions and U.S. postal offices generally have a notary available to certify your signature. Also, you can visit a clerk or deputy clerk of a court of record, court commissioner, register or deputy register of deeds, judge or county or deputy county clerk.
