I didn't finish/pass all my classes for my associates degree but received a "Certificate of Completion". How should I list this on my resume?

First and foremost, you will want to be upfront and honest with a potential employer when filling out your application or interviewing. If the position requires a degree, they may deem you unqualified, however, it the positions only “prefers” a degree, then you may be more than qualified.  When listing on your resume, I suggest you list your certification just as it was presented to you.

Ensure that your resume accurately reflects the status of your associates degree.  You want to make sure you do not misrepresent yourself.  If you are fortunate enough to receive and accept an offer, the company will most likely want to confirm your academic background.  Letting employers know up front that you have a "certificate of completion" versus a degree is important.  

Also, understand the difference between an associates degree and a "certificate of completion" for your discipline.  You will most likely be asked this question during interviews, so understanding the difference will indicate that you anticipated the question and are prepared.

All the best.

Good question. It is important to accurately reflect your experiences and achievements. You should be as clear and as forthcoming as possible. If you did not receive your degree, you should list the name of the college you attended and list the Certificate of Completion, rather than listing this as an Associates degree. - Betsy, Accenture campus recruiter

It is important to remember that most companies will verify your degrees, past employment, etc.  As a result, it is critical for a job seeker to be 100% up front and honest about their background.  In your situation, just be careful about the wording.  List the school and certificate, as well as the focus of your classes on your resume, but be careful not to imply that you received an Associates or any other degree.  Be clear in listing Certificate of Completion and the date that you attended the school.  It will likely come up in an interview conversation, so do be prepared to discuss it if/when you receive an interview,
