If your secondary/high school certificate requires nostrification, you can complete the procedure after you arrive in Poland, but not later than by the end of the first (fall) semester.

Legalization

If your country has not signed the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, you will need to have your diploma/certificate legalized. You can do it at a Polish embassy or consulate in the country where the diploma was obtained. You will have to provide your legalized documents to the Admissions Office by the end of the first (fall) semester.

Nostrification

If your diplomas/certificates were issued in a country, which did not sign the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, or the other international agreements related to higher education, signed by Poland, they might need to undergo the process of nostrification. Nostrification is a procedure aimed at recognizing a foreign diploma as an equivalent to a Polish diploma. Nostrification of matriculation certificates (secondary/high school certificates) is processed by the local Education Office (Kuratorium Oświaty w Krakowie). You will have to provide your nostrificated documents to the Admissions Office by the end of the first (fall) semester.

Apostille

If a country where a given document was issued is a party to the Hague Convention of October 5, 1961, the document’s legalization is replaced by an Apostille certificate attached to it. The list of countries which signed the Convention and the institutions authorized to issue the Apostille is available here. You will have to provide your apostille to the Admissions Office by the end of the first (fall) semester.
