How do I verify that the digital diploma is genuine?

  • If you access the digital certificate directly from the SDU server because the graduate has granted you access via the Digital Diploma Mailbox, the diploma will always be valid.
  • If you have received the diploma as an e-mail or paper mail, you can easily verify the diploma through the included verification link.

On all pages of the digital diploma, you will find a verification link. By clicking the link, or entering it into an internet browser, you will be able to retrieve the original diploma from the SDU server.

If there is no verification link on the diploma or you if you are unable to retrieve the original diploma from the SDU server when clicking/entering the link, the diploma can not be regarded as valid.

If you are still in doubt about the validity of the diploma, please refer to Educational Law & Registration at SDU, via SPOC or at phone 65501059.

Paper diplomas

All diplomas from SDU have been issued as a digital document, as of  January 2018.  A few selected diplomas are still issued on paper, due to technical reasons. At SDU, a paper diploma is valid only if it is embossed with the official SDU stamp. 

Before January 2018, diploma's from SDU were issued as paper documents.
