Use terms like BA, MBA, AS when you list your education, don’t just list the university. This will indicate that you have a degree. Also, list your major if it is not obvious from your degree. For example, an MA (Masters) does not need further explanation, unless you had a specific concentration or specialization that would help your application, such as non-profit administration or other areas that relate to your expertise or the position. Listing your year of graduation is not required until you are selected as a top candidate and the agency will want to verify your degree. Listing your year of graduation could have a negative effect if recruiters assume your age doesn’t meet their requirements.
If you don’t have a degree but want to show some college education, describe the types of courses taken and the number of years attended. If there is a simple reason why you did not finish your degree, you can add that to your resume. For example: accepted a position before you finished a degree, finished all classes except thesis, or something similar. If you have certifications, indicate the type of certification and where you received it, such as Executive Leadership Certification from John F. Kennedy School at Harvard University.
