Requesting certificates as an Open edX student

As a learner, it's important to know how to access a certificate for a course you've completed.

Requesting a certificate

Click the Progress tab. Then, if you have achieved the necessary grade, click Request Certificate

Note: In this grading configuration, the student must have at least a 50%, because this is where the minimum grade was set to achieve a D. If the course were Pass/Fail, the student would simply have to achieve whatever the passing grade is. To learn more about the grading configuration read Setting up and grading assignment types for your Open edX course.

The certificate then generates, which should only take a few moments, but can take longer depending on how big your course is. Once it's done, the page will refresh and the button will now read View Certificate. Click it.
