Notary Public Services

Student Affairs offers limited one-on-one, in-person notary services by appointment only. Notary services are free to current GSDM students and residents; there is a $5 fee per acknowledgement/jurat for GSDM faculty, staff, and alumni.

Student Affairs may not be able to notarize document(s) due to various reasons, restrictions, or limitations. The decision to notarize a document is solely at the discretion of the notary, and he/she reserves the right to refuse to notarize a document for any reason.
