Does your office provide Notary Services?
The Office of the General Counsel provides free notary services to the Manhattan College community.
New York law requires you to provide the Notary Public a federal or state identification that contains your photograph and signature, such as a driver’s license or passport. A Manhattan College ID is not sufficient documentation. We will not be able to notarize your documents unless you provide appropriate identification.
The documents should be completely filled out, but unsigned. The Notary Public cannot notarize an incomplete form and is required to witness you sign the document.
