Texas A &M Corpus Christi students who graduate this semester will get two diplomas, and one of them will be digital.
The University is the first in Texas and one of just five in the entire country to offer digital credentials.
Along with the traditional paper degree, graduating students will receive an online version that can be accessed quickly during those all important job interviews.
Educators say that gives A & M Corpus Christi graduates an advantage in a competitive job market. Michael Rendon, a University Registrar, says,"The difference between this and a paper one is that it's shareable. They'll have it for the rest of their lives.
"They can share it on LinkedIn, they can share it on Twitter or Facebook and other platforms of social media," Rendon told KRIS 6 NEWS.
For now, the digital diplomas will only be available to upcoming graduating classes, but the university is working on also making them available to alumni.
