Hi, I am writing a resume for graduate admission. I am not sure whether I have to include the community college I attended before being transferred to Florida Atlantic University.I also have courses taken at University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. I did not graduate , but all the courses are in my official transcript.

Great question! When writing a resume, for grad admission or career opportunities, it’s best to remember who your audience is and what they are looking for. Since this is an academic resume, you should definitely include the universities you attended and also include any relevant course to your Graduate Major from those school. Hope you get accepted and best of luck in your studies!

You should definitely include any education from your previous history.  It shows the progression of your course of study, that you took courses abroad, etc.  It displays that you're a well rounded candidate with unique experiences!  If your grad major is related to certain undergrad courses you took, feel free to list large scale projects or expand upon examples of how you made an impact in the specific area of content.  Additionally, it is always best to list employment going back 7-10 years and all colleges attended with proper dates on a resume- colleges and former employers use this as a guide for background checks.  Best of luck on your application and future endeavours!

Great question - You want to use your resume to tell a story about your educational history and accomplishments without you being there in person.  It is a good idea not to exclude any details that an employer or admissions office may see, which may seem as though you are not paying attention to details or that you may be trying to hide something. Study abroad and community colleges offer great experiences and should be included on your application. It may also trigger an experience that you share with someone reading the applications, they may have done a similar study abroad or attended the same community college which would lend itself to some great conversation.  Good Luck!
