For applications to universities and businesses, authenticated copies of certificates are often required. We can authenticate documents free of charge for RWTH students if they meet certain requirements.

Due to the increased incidence of infection, we are not currently offering our credentialing service.

Rules and requirements

The documents must be academic (diploma, proof of internship, language course certificate, …).

What we cannot authenticate under any circumstances are civil status documents (identity cards, marriage certificates, birth certificates, police clearance certificates, …).

We authenticate only to specific addressees.

We must be able to understand the documents (German/English or with certified translation).

You have to bring the copies you want to have authenticated yourself. The copies must be single-sided and legible. The copy must have the same format as the original.

Authentication of other documents

If you cannot have your document authenticated by us because it does not meet the requirements, you can have it authenticated by the city of Aachen or other authorities.

Authentications during Corona

Due to the current situation, we offer our certification service twice a week and only with prior appointment booking through our booking system.

We carry out the certifications in our offices in the Mensa Academica. You can find a map here.

You must wear a mask in our office.

Please contact if you have any further questions about certification.
You can also reach us during our opening hours at 0241-8093792.
