It is the responsibility of Academic Management Services to ensure that each student's academic record (PIA) contains all required and properly certified documents as required by law. Due to the increasing frequency of on-line transactions, namely application and enrollment, the submission of personal identification is of particular importance.

The affixing of the apostille is provided for in article 3 of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents, concluded on 5 October 1961, and is only applicable to public documents that need to be recognized in a country that is a signatory of the Convention.
The Apostille is issued by the superior competent authority of the country where the document originated.
In Portugal, the affixing of apostilles is done by the Prosecutor General's Office. A fee for the issuance of the apostille and for the verification of an existing apostille is set at 10,20 € by article 1 of Executive order 86/2009, 3 April.
After the 31 December deadline has passed, Academic Management Services verifies if all documents have been submitted, and if they have, updates the student's file on Inforestud@nte to COMPLETED status. You can check your status under "File Status", via the link Academic Information>>Academic Data.
If your status is INCOMPLETE (in red), no official documents can be issued to you (certificate of completion, other certificates, verifications) while this status remains.
A student can submit documents at anytime, thereby updating his/her status to complete, and documents can be issued immediately.
