How do I know if the CeDiploma I received is valid?
There are two ways to validate your electronic diploma. (This also is noted on the second page of the CeDiploma.)
- Validate through the CMU validation website or by clicking the link on the second page of the CeDiploma and typing the necessary information where indicated.
- If you are using Adobe Reader or Acrobat 9.0 or higher, you will be able to view the Digital Signature, which is shown at the top of the PDF, and is part of the overall security of the document. If the Digital Signature shows a Blue Ribbon, it means that the document has not been tampered with; any other symbol signifies the document cannot be trusted.
Note: Other PDF/digital readers and some mobile devices may not be able to show the Digital Signature / Blue Ribbon.
Why does the certificate used to digitally sign the documents say CeCredential Trust?
When I pull up my CeDiploma on my iPhone/iPad, it only loads halfway on the screen and then a line appears. Why?
I am using a web browser to open the PDF, but it will not open properly. What do I do?
The CeDiploma is best viewed in Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. Some features may not be available when viewed in a web browser's default viewer. Please change the default viewer in your web browser so that it utilizes Adobe Reader or Acrobat.
Attention Mac users: When viewing an official electronic credential from Carnegie Mellon, the software utilizes 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.
