A certified copy is a copy (often a photocopy) of a primary document that has on it an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the primary document. It does not certify that the primary document is genuine, only that it is a true copy of the primary document.

An exemplified copy is a copy of an official document, such as a court pleading or judgment, which is obtained from the Clerk of Court where the particular document was filed. The clerk will certify in writing, affixing a court seal, that the particular document was properly signed and entered. Exemplified copies are more than certified copies -- the clerk certifies that the copies are genuine and the Judge certifies that the clerk has the authority to say they are genuine. 

Please check with the entity requesting the document to ensure which type of copy they require.
