What is the best way to put on your resume you attended some college, but do not have a degree?
You almost need to just to explain gaps in employment
Attended College X from date start - date end
If you had a declared major and were accepted into that major then state it
If you say attended rather BS or BA ... it is clear you did not graduate
If you were just going part time and did not really get far enough to take any advanced courses then maybe leave it off
If you dropped a PhD for a Masters then just list the Masters. If you got 1/2 way through a 4 year degree and settled for a junior college then just list the junior college. If you you took algebra and English dropped out and got Ds then don't list it. Ask yourself if you would like to produce the transcript if asked.
