For self-paced courses
Self-paced courses automatically issue certificates for verified learners as soon as they reach a passing score. When the certificate is ready, links to view the certificate are visible on your dashboard and on the course Progress page.
Other self-paced courses, including CS50x, generate verified certificates for passing students monthly.
When your certificate becomes available, View Certificate option is visible on your dashboard and the course Progress page. Select View Certificate to open the certificate in your browser.
For instructor-paced courses
For instructor-paced courses (courses that release materials weekly on a set schedule), certificates are generated automatically a few days after the course end date for all students who are in the verified track and have earned a passing score in the course. You can find the expected date on the right side of the course homepage under Important Dates labelled Certificate Available.
What if I cannot find my certificate?
Double check the Progress tab in your course to make sure that you've earned a passing score: How do I know if I passed?
If you don't have a passing score and the course hasn't ended, you may be able to complete more assignments in the course to raise your grade. You might have completed all assignment in the course but still have to wait for a grade on an open response assessment.
If you have questions, please post on the course discussion forum where your course staff can help.
