I’m looking for information about how to get a graduate degree authenticated from the USA for a university job in Taiwan. This will be my first time using the graduate degree for a job and I was rather surprised to hear the person recruiting say that I needed to get this done on my own. I believe the diploma needs to be notarized and I believe that AIT provides notary services, although at an exorbitant price. Then I believe it needs to be sent to the TECO that represents the state the diploma was issued from. I’m not sure exactly what the process is or how long it will take. Has anyone done this before? Also:
-Why is this necessary for a graduate degree? I never had to do this for my bachelors.
-How long does the authentication last for? Is it good for life or has a certain validity?
-Is this authentication an Apostille?
Would like to hear from those who have had to get a graduate degree authenticated for a uni job or other jobs as well, thanks in advance.
