I finished my LLM program at NYU in 2006. I haven't yet received my diploma because I am still paying my tuition debt to school. When I finish paying, NYU will give me the degree, but will it show as I received my degree in 2006 or the year I actually finished paying and received it?
I am currently applying for green card lottery where I need to state my level of education as of the date of application. Is it correct to say I have a masters degree or should I say some university level course?
I have graduated academically, I just owe money and I will have it paid by the time green card lottery results are known.
