I am currently working on pset8 and planning to geta verified certificate once I finish the final project, I don't own a credit card so I might b asking someone else to pay for me using his/her card, just wanna know what additional things or information will I be needing when I apply for a verified certificate?


Using a webcam, you'll take photos of yourself and your government-issued photo ID. Our software will evaluate your photos and verify that you're the person completing the course

So you will need to record a video of yourself and your passport, to verify that you are who you say you are.

  • The video of the person with passport, can it b recorded with a cellphone camera? I have a bad quality webcam – Furrukh Jamal Oct 18 '16 at 21:30
  • As long as you can upload it I assume. Else it would be nearly impossible for many people to get a certificate. – kluvin Oct 18 '16 at 21:32
