You Can List Your Degree with Future Grad Date on Resume

BUILD MY RESUME

College students sometimes feel funny listing a degree on their resumes when they haven’t graduated yet. But if you list your degree with your graduation date, and the date is in the future, the employer will understand that you don’t yet have the degree. For example:
Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Rollins College, Winter Park, FL, May 2011.
However, you may feel more comfortable adding the word “expected” to the above:
Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Rollins College, Winter Park, FL, expected May 2011.
