CeDiploma Features

CeDiploma Features

A CeDiploma is identical to its paper sibling, but presented in an electronic, secure and verifiable format.

A CeDiploma can be validated online one of two ways:

1. DIPLOMA VALIDATION PAGE: To ensure the Degree information is still valid, the CeDiploma should be validated through the School’s website using a 12-digit Certified Electronic Document ID (CeDiD*), along with the first two letters of the name as it appears on the Diploma.

2. DIGITAL SIGNATURE: Each CeDiploma is digitally signed by CeCredential Trust. When the document is viewed through Adobe Reader® or Acrobat® versions 9.0 or higher, it will reveal that a Digital Signature has been applied to the document.

Adobe Reader® and Acrobat® use a blue ribbon across the top of the document to indicate document has not been tampered with since it was first created, and is therefore authentic.

*CeDiD: Certified Electronic Document ID

Attn. Mac users: When viewing an official electronic credential from Western University of Health Sciences, the software utilizes Adobe's secure certified PDF technology and therefore may only be viewed using the free Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat 9.0 or higher. The default Mac preview application will not display the document correctly.

Questions or Concerns

If you have any further questions, or need additional help, please email registrar@westernu.edu. For all inquiries, we ask that you kindly include the CeDiD number, and the name of the Alumni as it appears on the CeDiploma.
