How to Authenticate the Certified Electronic Diploma from the Ohio University Office of the University Registrar

A CeDiploma can be validated online one of two ways:

  1. OHIO UNIVERSITY DIPLOMA VALIDATION PAGE: To ensure the degree information is still valid, we highly recommend you visit the Ohio University Diploma Validation webpage, to perform an additional validation.

    Enter the 12-digit CeDiD found in the upper corner of the CeDiploma, along with the first two letters of the graduate's first name as it appears on the diploma.

  2. DIGITAL SIGNATURE: All CeDiplomas from Ohio University are digitally signed by CeCredential Trust. When the document is viewed through Adobe Reader or Acrobat versions 9.0 or higher, it will reveal that a digital signature has been applied to the document.

    Adobe Reader and Acrobat use a blue ribbon across the top of the document to indicate the document has not been tampered with, and is therefore authentic.


Attn Mac users: When viewing an official electronic diploma from Ohio University, the software utilizes Adobe's secure certified PDF technology and therefore may only be viewed using the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat 9.0 or higher. The default Mac preview application will not display the document correctly.

Questions or Concerns

If you have any further questions, or need additional help, please email graduation@ohio.edu. For all inquiries, we ask that you kindly include the CeDiD number, and the name of the graduate as it appears on the CeDiploma.
