edX currently offers two types of certificates:
- Certificates for single courses
- Program certificates for programs (series of courses)
Note: Not all courses offer certificates, and archived courses do not award certificates.
Course certificates are available for a fee that varies by course. You earn a certificate by passing the course with the required grade in the paid track.
For more information about verified certificates, see the edX Verified Certificates page.
You earn program certificates when you have earned a verified certificate for each course in the program. edX offers program certificates for MicroMasters™, MicroBachelors™, Professional Certificate, and XSeries programs. For example, here is an XSeries program certificate.
For more information about programs, see the topics in the Programs section.
