I am filling out a job application and I know there's an official word for it, but I just can't think of it. It can normally be found on transcripts.

  • If they can be normally be found on transcripts, have you tried checking one? You can usually get unofficial ones for free.

  • Maybe you could provide more context from the application so we may better answer your question. It's too open-ended at this point.

I've always thought "expected" was appropriate for this.Maybe "anticipated"?


Class of 2013 means just that — you are expected to graduate in 2013 based on your current status.


Some alternatives I've seen:

  • class of 2013
  • class of '13
  • Projected graduation date: 2013
  • Projected graduation date: May, 2013
  • Projected graduation date: May 10, 2013
  • Expected graduation date: 2013
  • Expected graduation date: May, 2013
  • Expected graduation date: May 10, 2013
  • I am a candidate for graduation this year.
  • In God's grace, I am about to fulfill my bachelor degree and will graduate on the 16th of April this year.
  • I will graduate on...
  • I am about to graduate on...
