Request Birth Certificate

The City Secretary’s Office will be closed on Friday, April 12 from 8 to 11 am for Staff Development. Birth and Death Certificates will not be issued. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The Office of the City Secretary maintains vital statistics for all births that occurred within the City of College Station. A birth certificate may only be obtained by the person of record or by a qualified applicant who presents qualifying identification.

Unqualified applicants needing to verify births or deaths may receive a birth or death verification stating whether a record of birth or death is on file with the City of College Station. If a record is filed, the verification letter will include the person's name, the date of the event, and the county where the event occurred. Verification letters are not considered legal substitutes for certified copies of birth or death certificates.

Applications for birth certificates and verifications are below. Please see the second page of each application for instructions.

Processing Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Office Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
