Receiving Your Academic Credentials

Certificates and Specializations

The My Certificates and Specializations link on your Student Portal can help you to monitor your academic progress. Once you have completed your final courses, your UCLA Extension program representative will verify that you have met all program requirements.*

The UCLA Extension Office of the Registrar will produce your certificate or award of completion (for specializations) and mail it to you within two weeks of receiving verification from your program representative that all requirements have been met.

Awarded with Distinction
Students who complete their academic certificate programs with a GPA of 3.5 or higher have the honor “Awarded with Distinction” cited on their certificate and posted to their academic transcript.

*To expedite the process, you may reach out to your program representative directly to request an audit of your certificate and/or specialization program requirements.

Digital Badges

UCLA Extension has partnered with Credly to issue digital badges to students who complete specific courses and programs. Upon earning a badge, students will receive an e-mail containing a link to review and share their digital badge electronically.
