Key Benefits of a Certified Electronic Credential:

  • More than a paper credential. An official, portable, and verifiable electronic version of your diploma or certificate that can be shared for a lifetime!
  • The CeCredential holds your 12-digit CeDiD*. Using Validation Services, your CeDiD is the key to your degree or certificate information for employers, agencies, and more.
  • Provide your CeDiD and Ohio University's URL on your resume to highlight your achievement and expedite the verification process for potential employers.
  • Unlimited sharing with employers, family, friends, and social media.
  • Enhances your resume. Expedite the verification process by providing your CeDiD and validation URL on your resume.
  • Simple for employers to read and understand.

The certified electronic credential is highly secure:

  • The CeCredential can be independently validated through the Ohio University website by future employers, state government licensing agencies, and any other entity that wishes to validate your diploma.
  • The document is digitally signed by CeCredential Trust and encrypted such that it is trusted and more readily accepted. Should the document be altered in any way, the signature will inform the recipient that the document can no longer be trusted.
  • For security reasons, the electronic credential cannot be printed.
