Choose the course that's right for you
At edX, we have many types of courses to choose from. Choose the one that's right for you. Our courses are rigorous so choose wisely. Some courses allow you to earn a certificate of achievement that is verified to ensure you are the one taking the course.
Upload identifying photos
Using a webcam, you'll take photos of yourself and your government-issued photo ID. Our software will evaluate your photos and verify that you're the person completing the course. When you pass the course, you'll receive a verified certificate that provides a level of comfort to those who may want assurance about the authenticity of your edX course work.
Study hard and pass the course
EdX is known for its high-quality, rigorous courses. To qualify for your verified certificate, you'll need to watch course videos, participate in the discussion forums, and complete homework and exams with a passing grade. If you don't pass, you can take the course again at a later time.
Congratulations—you’ve passed the course!
When you pass your course, you'll receive a certificate that includes an "edX verified" stamp showing that you and you alone took and passed the course. Share your certificate with friends, employers and others through an easy-to-share link we provide.
