How to Authenticate the Certified Electronic Diploma or Certificated Electronic Certificate from Ohio University 

A CeDiploma or CeCertificate can be validated online one of two ways:

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

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

  1. DIGITAL SIGNATURE: All CeCredentials 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.


When viewing an official CeCredential from Ohio University, the credential utilizes Adobe's secure certified PDF technology, and, therefore the digital signature can only be verified using the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat 9.0 or higher. For example, 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 For all inquiries, we kindly ask that you include the CeDiD number and the name of the graduate as it appears on the CeCredential.
