Valid proof

An extract from Mijn diploma's is an official document issued by DUO. It is considered valid proof of your obtained diploma, even though it does not look like your original diploma and grade list.

A digital extract is a PDF document. The PDF has a blue bar at the top with the so-called digital signature. The blue bar indicates that the document is valid and unaltered, and has been issued by DUO.

You may only use a digital extract for digital purposes. If you print or edit the extract, the document is no longer valid.

No blue bar

The blue bar is visible only on a computer (Windows or Apple), not on a mobile phone or tablet. However, you can download your diploma on a mobile phone or tablet and e-mail it to a computer. The blue bar will be visible there.

Extracts of secondary school diplomas come with a complete grade list, diplomas for secondary vocational education come with an incomplete list of grades, and extracts for various other diplomas are issued without a grade list.
