I'm currently updating my CV because recently I finished a master program. although the ceremony is going to be on March, I don't have the diploma yet. How should I state this in my CV?

  • Related: What date should I use for graduation?. Has your degree been conferred yet?

  • Wonderful, thanks, I think that is the answer I was looking for Feb 2, 2015 at 2:35

Find out from the university when the degree is conferred. This may be before or after the ceremony (it could be already conferred). (Also see: What date should I use for graduation?)

  • If the degree has already been conferred, you can write that you have a masters degree (the ceremony is irrelevant).
  • If it hasn't, write that you have completed the degree requirements, and expect the degree to be conferred on X date.
