Notary Public Education
In North Carolina, the office of Notary Public is regulated by the Secretary of State. Specific information about becoming a notary and maintaining a commission can be found at Sosnc.gov.
SCC's notary courses are held in both Sylva and Franklin. The course tuition is $70. Additionally, the North Carolina Notary Public Manual is required for the class. The book is available at the SCC bookstore. It is recommended that students purchase and read through a copy of the book prior to attending class. Note that there is no bookstore at the Macon Campus.
In addition to the notary public manual, students will need to bring a current valid photo ID (Federal, State or Tribal) to the class.
Notary classes start at 9 a.m. and typically finish about 6 p.m. The course includes an exam. Upon passing the exam with 80% or better, students will be able to send a completed application for commission as a notary to the Sec. of State's office. The application must be accompanied by a check to the Sec. of State for $50.
