A CeDiploma from University of Maryland University College can be validated online in one of two ways. 

1. Diploma Validation Tool

To ensure your degree information is still valid, we highly recommend you use UMUC's CeDiploma Validation Tool to perform an additional validation.

Enter the 12-digit CeDiD found in the upper left corner of the CeDiploma, along with the first two letters of the name as it appears on the CeDiploma.

2. Digital Signature

A CeDiploma from UMUC is digitally signed by CeCredential Trust. When the document is viewed through Adobe Reader or Acrobat 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 and is therefore authentic.

Note for Mac Users

When viewing an official electronic credential from UMUC, the software utilizes Adobe's secure certified PDF technology and therefore may only be viewed using Adobe Reader or 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 contact sagraduationserv@umuc.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.
