Should I inlcude a school that I haven't finished in my CV?

Before transferring to my current school,Umich, I was an exchange student from a HK institution to the U of Leeds in UK. However, because Umich started the semester before Leeds' finals, I did not attend finals and didn't get any credit there. I think it can show my diverse experience to include U of Leeds in my CV, but I don't have credits...
Also, how should I cover this 3-month exchange experience in my CV which I have no transcript? Should I specify the reason in Addendum?

    I would assume so, because it will look strange that you didn't complete the course technically. Any input on this, @david.busis ?

    That’s a pretty unique situation, I’m not sure what the answer to this one is. Were you officially enrolled at Leeds? My suspicion is that, without acquiring any credits, it won’t count for much, but that doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't list it somehow. There still might be a way to account for it, but I’m honestly not sure what the best way to go about it would be.

    I'd put Leeds on your resume to account for the time and write two or three-sentence addendum to explain why it doesn't show up on your transcripts.

    @"Dillon A. Wright" @montaha.rizeq @"Cant Get Right" Thank you for your help and inputs! And @david.busis yes, I will put leeds in and explain it in my addendum.

    Thank you all!
