For PERM, can I use my master's degree completed after I joined?

Question details

My master's degree was officially completed after joining my current company, but I had already earned 54 out of 57 total credits of my master's degree before joining this company. So, can I use this master's degree to satisfy job requirements for my GC sponsored by this company?

The answer is probably not for the same job for which you were hired. You cannot use your master's degree that you obtained after you joined as a software developer, but you could certainly use it for the next higher job.
