IMPORTANT: ALL academic documents for studies completed in Cuba must be legalized by the Cuban Government at the Embassy of Cuba in Washington, DC before they are submitted for evaluation. Please read instructions below:

The first step is for you to submit your documents (transcripts and diplomas) to The Embassy of Cuba in Washington, D.C.  The Embassy will legalize current diplomas and transcripts and also request transcripts and diplomas directly from Cuba. (The Embassy sends documents to MINREX – Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores in Cuba; once the documents are back from MINREX to the Embassy, the Embassy legalizes with stamps and seals.)
