Verify your name

To get a certificate, you'll need to verify your identity. Most courses only need Name Verification, but some require ID Verification.

You only need to complete Name Verification once to get a certificate for any course you take.

Steps to verify

To verify your name:

  1. Log in to your Coursera account.
  2. Click the drop-down menu next to your name in the top-right, then click Settings.
  3. Scroll to the Name Verification section and click Verify My Name.
  4. Fill out the request, check the box, then click Submit.

If verification succeeds, your Settings page will update with your verified name.

Request a name change

You can request a name change after Name Verification by following these steps:

  1. Visit your Settings page.
  2. Click Request Name Change.
  3. Fill out the request, then click Submit.

Your name will display in all capital letters on certificates.
