Claiming through Credly

FIU has partnered with Credly to offer digital badges for Micro-Credential earners. A Micro-Credential can be represented through a single badge or a series of badges - also known as a meta-badge.

Once you have received this email, take the following steps:

  1. Click the “Accept your badge” box in the middle of the message
  2. Create your Credly profile if you have not done so already
  3. Accept your badge
  4. Share your badge to LinkedIn and other social media platforms

Share your Micro-Credential

Once you've earned your badge, you can share it on your:

  • LinkedIn account or other social media
  • Website or online portfolio
  • Resume/CV
  • Email signature

Micro-Credentials are not documented on FIU students’ academic transcripts. They serve as a digital representation of competencies gained through participation in FIU courses and/or co-curricular activities.

Create your narrative

Now that you have earned a Micro-Credential, it is important to reflect on the skills you have and language that you can use to talk about them. The practice of reflection will help you to develop a narrative around your professional development journey - which is important as you prepare for an interview, promotion, or other opportunities.
