• Beginning with summer 2018 graduates, The New School automatically provides Certified Electronic Credentials (also known as CeDiploma or CeCertificate). If you graduated before summer 2018 and would like to know more about CeCredentials, please contact us.

    Diplomas will not be issued to students with holds on their record. Holds must be cleared before a diploma can be released. You can view your holds online. To clear a hold, contact the office that has placed the hold to resolve it.

    Key Benefits

    More Than a Paper Credential

    The credential is an official, secure, and verifiable PDF record of your accomplishment!

    Different from a Transcript

    • Allows for unlimited sharing with family, friends, employers and social media
    • Offers proof of education with only the important details
    • Is easy for employers to read and understand

    Better Than an eDiploma

    Enhances Your Résumé

    Expedite the verification process by providing your CeDiD and validation URL on your résumé.

    Highly Secure

    • Each CeDiploma and CeCertificate can be independently validated here by potential employers, state government licensing agencies, and any other entity that wishes to validate your achievement.
    • The document is digitally signed and encrypted, inspiring greater trust and acceptance.
    • For security reasons, the electronic credential cannot be printed.
