How to Validate the CeDiploma/CeCertificate

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

1) CWRU DIPLOMA/CERTIFICATE VALIDATION PAGE: To ensure the degree information is still valid, visit the Validation page.

Enter the 12 digit CeDiD found in the upper corner of the CeDiploma/CeCertificate, along with the first two letters of the first name as it appears on the Diploma/Certificate.

2) DIGITAL SIGNATURE: All electronic diplomas/certificates from CWRU have been 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 document has not been tampered with and is therefore authentic.

Attn Mac users: When viewing a CeDiploma/CeCertificate from CWRU, the software utilizes Adobe’s secure certified PDF technology and therefore may only be viewed using the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat 7.0 or higher. The default Mac preview application will not display the document correctly.
