Where can I find my certificate?
For self-paced courses
With self-paced courses, once a learner passes the required score, they will automatically be issued a certificate. For some courses, including CS50x, certificates are generated monthly for passing students. Once your certificate is available, you will see a “View Certificate” option on your dashboard and course Progress page. Selecting this option opens the certificate in your browser.
For instructor-paced courses
For instructor-paced courses, certificates will be generated a few days after the course ends for all students who have completed the verified track with a passing score. The expected date is labelled “Certificate Available” and can be found on the right side of the course homepage under Important Dates.
What if I cannot find my certificate?
Check the progress tab in your course to make sure you’ve earned a passing grade: How do I know if I passed? If you don’t have a pass score and the course hasn’t ended, you might be able to finish additional tasks to improve your grade. You may have finished all of the assignments in the course but still need to wait for an open response assessment grade. If you have any queries, please use the discussion forum where your course staff can assist you.
