Certified Electronic Diploma (CeDiploma)

Beginning with fall 2023, the University of Georgia offers a Certified Electronic Diploma, or CeDiploma, to graduates. The CeDiploma appears identical to a paper diploma and will be emailed to graduates 8-10 weeks after graduation. Graduates can share their CeDiploma with third parties to validate on UGA's webpage.
