If those times do not work for you, please email dos@bu.edu to arrange an appointment.

Online Notary Availability

If you cannot come in during normal business hours, our office has partnered with Notarize.com. Founded by a BU alumnus, Notarize.com is an online service available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to do notarizations via online chat. Register on their site with your BU.edu email address to receive $5 off every notarization. If you have any questions about using an online notary public for your document, connect with the Notarize support team via their site.

Things To Know

  • You must present a government-issued ID for notarizations.
  • Don’t sign your form until you get here. The notary needs to watch you sign it.
  • We cannot notarize bank statements or financial records. Only the bank or entity originating the statement can certify the statement.
  • We can make a color copy of your passport or driver’s license for you for notarization purposes – just ask when you arrive! No need to find a copier yourself!
  • If you are looking to have a closing packet notarized, please email dos@bu.edu to make an appointment instead of coming into walk-in hours. Closing packets take approximately 20 minutes to notarize, and walk-in hours are not meant for notarizations of that length.

Can’t get down to the George Sherman Union? The University Registrar also offers walk-in notary services for University documents only. There are also notaries available at the Medical Campus at the School of Medicine and School of Dental Medicine.
