From what I recall while getting married to a non-American citizen, apostilles must come from your state's Secretary of State. It's basically a state to federal level notary. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do it.

Unfortunately, the Korean Government is switching over to federal apostilles now for folks who are coming over from the US. I was just going to take my to our Oregon Secretary of State, but I have had several recruiters who strongly recommended against it. The Spring 2012 EPIK term will only be taking federal apostilles and hagwons are going to follow suit, from what they've told me.
Thanks for your concern, I appreciate it; please let me know if you hear anything else!

From the State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs, Authentication of American Academic Credentials for Use Abroad:
(Source: http://travel.state.gov/law/judicial/judicial_5188.html)

Colleges, Universities and Other Post-Secondary Institutions

1) Obtain from the registrar of the University an official true copy of the credentials. The registrar should then execute an affidavit attesting to the validity of the document before a notary public in the registrar's office or elsewhere at the university. Frequently the business offices of colleges and universities have notaries public.

2) Take the document, with the notarial certificate to the state Notary Public Administrator for authentication. If the country where the document will be used is a party to the Hague Apostille Convention, the state Notary Public Administrator will affix an Apostille certificate and no further authentication is necessary. See the Hague Conference on Private International Law Apostille Page for a current list of countries party to the treaty. The treaty is in force many countries throughout the world.

3) If the country is not a party to the Hague Apostille Convention, the state Notary Public Administrator will affix a state authentication certificate. You should then send the document to the Authentications Office of the Department of State, following the instruction on that office’s web page.

4) If necessary, obtain authentication of the U.S. Department of State seal at the foreign embassy in Washington, D.C. The embassy in Washington, DC of the country in which the document is to be used can tell you if this is required.

Thank you, but I am getting my CRC (criminal record check) apostilled, not my degree.
