A CeDiploma can be validated online one of two ways:
1) DIPLOMA VALIDATION PAGE: To ensure the Degree information is still valid, we highly recommend you visit the School’s official website to perform an additional validation.
Enter the 12-digit CeDiD found in the upper corner of the CeDiploma, along with the first two letters of the name as it appears on the Diploma.
2) DIGITAL SIGNATURE:All CeDiplomas from American University are digitally signed by CeCredentialTrust. 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 Acrobatuse a blue ribbon across the top of the document to indicate document has not been tampered with, and is therefore authentic.
NOTE: MAC Users - when viewing an official electronic diploma from American University, the software uses 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.
