Certificate Features

Saylor Academy certificates by Accredible truly stand out with innovative and exceptional features! Each certificate displays the following information by default:

  • Your name, the Saylor Academy logo, and the title of your course
  • A detailed description of your course with links back to Saylor Academy
  • The date when your certificate was issued
  • A unique certificate ID

Because these credentials are digital, hosted, and unique, anyone viewing your certificate knows that it was issued by Saylor Academy and only by Saylor Academy.

And you can do much more with your course certificates:

Document your learning for free. With Saylor Academy, you can develop your learning portfolio without breaking the bank; keep your money and keep learning.
Add “evidence items” by link or file upload. Your imagination is the limit! Share your course notes, discussion forums contributions, quiz grades, essays, projects, personal reflections — anything that serves to prove what you have learned.
Display on your LinkedIn profile. With one click, let your LinkedIn network know that you continually pursue excellence through your “always learning” approach!
Include a personal or professional reference. Ask a coursemate, employer, or friend who can vouch for your learning to share a brief statement of support.
Quickly share on social media. One-click sharing makes it easy to let your networks know about your accomplishments — and to help spread the word about Saylor Academy.
Share by link anywhere. Anyone with the link can view your public certificate and only the certificates you choose to share with them.
Set as public or private. How and when you share your certificate is up to you.
Print or save to PDF. File it away, frame it for the wall, stick it to your refrigerator door, keep an offline copy for your records, attach it to emails, embed it in your website, etc.
Show or hide your final grade. Let people see where you stand — less than 100% simply means that nobody just handed this certificate to you!
View as part of your Saylor Academy transcript. All of your public certificates display as a list of course titles on your digital transcript, which you can print or download.
