You put unfinished college on a resume if it directly applies to the job that you’re seeking, if it explains a work gap on your resume, or if you’re still in the process of attaining a degree. Put the information about your unfinished college experience at the bottom of your resume, in the Education section.
When listing your unfinished degree, always be honest – never try to fudge the facts to make it seem like you have graduated. It’s too easy for employers to check that information, and any lies on your resume will quickly eliminate you from job consideration. You can mention the number of credits you earned, along with the major you pursued. If you’re currently working on a degree, you can include your field of study and the classwork that makes you a good fit for the job, such as graphic design classes if you’re applying for a graphics job, or biology research if you’re applying to work in a lab.
You can mention your unfinished degree like this: “University of Michigan, Bachelor of Science degree candidate: anticipated completion May, 2020.”

There are a few different options you can take in listing your unfished college. You can simply write the college and its location with no other details. If you think more information will help you look good, add the years you attended and how many credits you completed. If you had a great GPA, put that as well.
Another way to list unfinished college is to mention some of your coursework. This is particularly valuable if you took courses in an area that is relevant to the job to which you are applying. You can handle this in one of two ways. The first is to write down credits you completed. For example, "Marshall College, 2010-2012, Wyler, TX, completed 24 credits in business." You can also list classes as in, "Marketing and Finance, Statistics 1 and 2."
