I walked during my graduation 2 years ago but still had one English elective to take before technically completing my degree. Right after “graduation” I landed a job in my field and have worked there for two years now and never finished that one English class. Months into my job, it turned out that I had a past due payment to the school which I’m now paying off every month. I can’t even enroll to finish the course until I’ve paid off the full amount and that’s impossible to do in my current financial situation. This balance won’t get paid off until 2020!
I’m currently on the hunt for a new job and I have no idea how to tell potential employers about the unfinished degree... it’s unfortunate because I completed all my courses for my double major and have over 3 years of relevant work experience but I don’t have a bachelor degree because of one English elective.
I’m in the beginning stages of the interview process for a great company and I’m not sure how to disclose this information within seeming like a fraud. It completely slipped my mind to let them know in the very beginning and now I think it’s too late. Should I just keep quiet for this one and hope for the best?
And going forward, how do I address this situation when sending in my resume?
