Best Practices for edX Photo Verification

In order to earn a Verified Certificate you'll need to verify your identity. This is accomplished by taking a photo of yourself & a photo ID using a webcam. For best results:

  • Make sure your face is well lit and fills the picture window.
  • Do not submit blurry photos.
  • Assure just your photo identification card fills the window and your name is visible.
  • The name on your ID has to exactly match the full-name you have on your edX account. If needed, you can change the name on your account in order to match your ID
