A verified certificate shows that you have successfully passed an edX course in the verified track. You must also have verified your identity using your webcam and a photo ID that has the photo and name on the same side, with a name that matches your full name in your edX account. For more details about ID verification, see Best Practices for edX Photo Verification.
Verified certificates are available for a fee that varies by course. Many students use verified certificates to apply for jobs and university admissions.
