Question Can I apply with provisional degree certificate?

I had passed step 1 and planning to take step 2 ck in Jan. and cs in May 2014.
I want to apply for match in Sept 2014. My problem is my degree certificate. I will complete my internship in March 2014 and will get my degree in Dec. 2014.
I will get provisional degree certificate in April. Can I apply with provisional degree certificate?

Why your degree is delayed until December 2014? What is the last day in school?

Yes. You can apply but you won't be ECFMG certified which means some programs might not send you interview invitations.
