Digital Certificates & Badges

College of Continuing and Professional Education

Congratulations to you!

You’re proud and you’ve worked hard. Now it’s time to celebrate your achievement, thank those who matter to you most, and let your credentials go to work for you.

CSUDH College of Continuing and Professional Education has partnered with Parchment to offer an official digital version of your certificate. You can get it faster than your printed version, so it’s a great way to immediately share your accomplishment with your family, friends, and employers.

It’s fast, free, and shareable.

Share with potential employers to kick-start the next step in your professional journey or career.

 How to Get It:

Students who have successfully met program completion requirements and have submitted the certificate request application will receive an email and text notification with instructions for electronically claiming their certificate.

Follow these simple steps:

  1. Check your email and text messages for the award notification.
  2. Follow the link to set up your Parchment digital credentials account.
  3. Share your digital certificate on Facebook and LinkedIn or download a secure .pdf version.

Your digital certificate will always be accessible through your Parchment account. You can login and download or share it again and again — at no cost to you. (Your certificate will be sent to your email address on file, so be sure to update your personal email address.)

Note: Only Spring 2018 (with verified program completion after May 31, 2018) and later students are candidates for receiving digital certificates; we regret that we will not be able to issue them to students who have completed programs prior to Spring 2018.
