When applying for an overseas job, among the required documents you may be asked to submit your red ribbon diploma from college or high school diploma, Transcript of Records (TOR), and Form 137. These are usually requested by embassies and consulates.
You can seek help from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to get this done through the agency’s Certification Verification Authentication (CAV) process.
Here’s how you do it: Red ribbon diploma and other documents
College Diploma and Transcript of Records
To begin with, you need to prepare at least 3 photocopies of your college diploma and Transcript of Records (TOR).
If you graduated from a private university, you will then need to submit them to the registrar’s office of your college or university so they can be certified as true copies. Be sure to fill up the Authentication Registration Form and other forms that the Registrar will give you. Afterward, pay the required fees and claim the certified diploma and TOR.

Next, head to the CHED office and submit your documents for DFA Red Ribbon purpose. Fill up the application form and pay the fees. You will then be given a stub which indicates the date when you can claim your Red Ribboned documents at the DFA office.
For public or state universities, just visit the registrar’s office at your school and they’ll help you out with that.
High School Diploma and Form 137
For your high school diploma and Form 137, prepare the original copies along with 2 photocopies each and then visit your registrar. Other requirements may include certification of graduation, special order number (if you graduated from a private school), 2 pieces of passport size photos, and a fee.
DepEd will help forward the papers to the DFA for the CAV process. As with the procedure above, they will give you a stub with schedule indicated on when you can claim the documents from the DFA office.
