You don't have to say if you didn't complete the degree...for example, this is how my resume reads for programs I did/didn't complete:

University of New Mexico
♦ Master of Arts in Secondary Education, 12/05, GPA: 3.89/4.00
♦ Resident Teacher Program (06/04–08/05), GPA: 3.89/4.00
♦ UNM/SFPS Intern Program (06/03–08/04), GPA: 3.75/4.00

New Mexico Highlands University 01/03–05/03
♦ Graduate student of Secondary Education, GPA: 3.75/4.00

University of Illinois at Chicago 01/00–05/02
♦ Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology, 01/01, GPA: 4.92/5.00
♦ Graduate student of Secondary Education, , GPA 4.92/5.00

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 08/91–05/95
♦ Fields of study: Anthropology, Spanish

You will notice that for NM Highlands and UW-Milwaukee, there are no degrees listed, just fields of study/graduate experience. This is perfectly acceptable.
