Claiming degree on resume before receiving it
I just applied for my associates degree several days ago from the local community college. I had to meet with an adviser to make sure I had all my required courses completed, and fill out a graduation application form, and pay some fees.
Apparently, however, it will take around 4-6 months for them to give me the actual degree, despite having met with the adviser who confirmed I had all the required courses completed. I assume this is because it's currently the beginning of the semester, and they don't want to hand out degrees until after a semester ends.
My question is, when completing a resume, would it be looked down upon, or seem dishonest to include associates degree when completing the part about education? (All of the applications are online)
