Certified Electronic Credential Overview

Thomas Edison State University now offers Certified Electronic Diplomas (CeDiploma)!

TESU Diploma

How to Access Your Certified Electronic Diploma:

CeDiplomas are only available to graduates in the September 2020 class and later. The CeDiploma is in addition to your mailed diploma package, which will arrive within 2 weeks of your degree conferral. CeDiplomas are only available for degrees, not for certificates.

You will receive an email with a link to download your credential when it is available from our trusted partner, CeCredential Trust®. To request a new download link, please use the CeCredential Trust site to resend the link.

Trouble validating your CeDiploma? Try a different browser, such as FireFox, to validate your credential.

To ensure you retain access to your credentials in the future, tap the "Register" link near the top of the CeCredential Trust webpage to set up your free membership registration. (There is a $10.95 charge for the CeDiploma but registration on the site is free.)
