You put education in progress on your resume under your education section. Note the degree you are working toward, the name of the educational institution you are attending, and the expected date of completion. Here’s an example:
BA in Communications Temple University, Philadelphia PA Expected date of completion: June 2022
Each piece of education that is in progress should provide specific elements. Always include the name of the degree you are expecting to receive. Always include the name of the university you are attending, and the city and state where the university is located. Always include the expected date of completion for your education.
Typically when your education is completed, you include the month and the year of your graduation. It should be noted that this month and year of your graduation are not required. If you are further in your career, you may want to omit this information so that it is harder for employers to guess your age.
As a note, there may be times where you started your education at one university and completed your education at another. You can list both universities if you want to. But, ask yourself one question. Why did you transfer from the first university to the second university? If the answer is negative, you may want to only include the university where you finished your studies. In other words, if you failed your coursework at the first university, you will likely not want to explain this in an interview.

Write the name of the school you are attending and include the city and state where it is located. Next write the name of your major or degree program, and follow it with the words, "Anticipated graduation date," with the year you plan to finish. If you want to put your current GPA, you can, but it needs to be stellar. You can also add any academic honors you have received.
If you have taken courses that directly apply to the position you are seeking, give them an extra line on your resume. You can list the course titles, such as "Computer Programming 1 and 2." Another option is to list how many credits you have earned in a particular area. For example, "Completed 12 credits in Computing and Informatics Design."
