EdX currently offers two types of certificates:
- Verified certificates for single courses
- Program certificates for programs
Note: Not all courses offer certificates, and archived courses do not award certificates.
Verified certificates are available for a fee that varies by course. You earn a verified certificate by passing the course with the required grade in the verified track. You must also verify your identity on edX before the verification deadline in the course.
You earn program certificates when you have earned a verified certificate for each course in the program. edX offers program certificates for MicroMasters™, 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.
If you do not want to earn a certificate, you can take the audit track of a course. You do not receive a certificate if you audit a course, but you can print your Progress page for the course if you want evidence of your achievement.
