Try Contacting Schools to Learn Number of Completed Credit-Hours

Celeste writes:
I am helping to update my husband’s resume because his part-time substitute bus-driving job is about to end. My dilemma is that he attended at technical college for a year and then transferred to community college but we couldn’t afford the fees for him to continue to obtain his degree – so how do I list that on the resume? I would ordinarily use his credit-hours but he hasn’t a clue how many he has and I’m unsure what to do.

The Career Doctor responds:
I would normally recommend listing credit hours. Can he not contact the schools to ask how many hours he completed? If not I would just list the span of dates of attendance the names and locations (city state) of the schools and area of study if any.
