Including Other Schools on Resume

Postby bosmer88 » Thu Aug 30, 2012 6:36 pm

Hello all!

I have been putting together my resume for applications. I wanted to know whether I should include other academic institutions (in addition to where I obtained my degree) on my resume. During my senior year and directly after graduating from university, I completed a few online classes as well as some in-person classes in order to get a teaching permit. Should I include these schools on my resume, or should I leave them out to maximize space? I felt compelled to ask because I never received a degree, permit, or certificate from these institutions, but since I did order transcripts for these schools, I was a bit unsure about what to do.

Thanks!

It's really anything goes so long as you aren't dishonest. I would probably leave off the online stuff, but if another institution granted you some sort of certificate I would list that one.

2014, thanks for your reply.

I think I will leave them off since I am running out of space. The law schools will get the transcripts, so I guess it should be fine.

Yeah theres no ethical issue so its more whether you want it on or not.
