Not sure how to list your college degree or the college coursework you have accumulated if you didn’t finish your degree on your resume? What if you didn’t go to college? How about if you’ve already graduated or are about to receive your degree? An entry level resume will often include a variety of information and be slightly more general than a resume for someone who has been in the workforce for many years.
If you don’t have a lot of work experience to prove your skills and capabilities on the job, it can be important to list any relevant college coursework, even if you didn’t graduate with a degree.
Here are a few options for including your education, as well as for mentioning credit you have earned for college-level work on your resume even though you didn’t graduate.
The Best Way to List College Education on Your Resume
How to include education on your resume depends on when or if you graduated. If you’re a college student or recent graduate, your college education is typically listed at the top of your resume. When you have work experience, it is listed below your employment history.
Recent graduates should include their graduation date. If you have a high Grade Point Average (GPA), it can be included as well:
B.A., Business Management, May 20XX
Sycamore University, Sonoma, California
