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.

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

Note that 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.

The certificate then generates, which only takes 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"
