Student & Graduate Reviews
Doctoral students may experience a difficult transition when they enter the dissertation phase of the program as this is when you are independently working on your research and are not held to the typical structured curriculum of the core and specialization courses. Your Faculty Chair and the rest of your dissertation committee are available for support and guidance. If you are experiencing any difficult and need assistance, please dont hesitate to contact your Student Services Advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-628-2752. We want to ensure that you are progressing with your dissertation so that you can graduate with your EdD.
Hello, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding the Ed.D. program. When the Ed.D. program first started in May of 2013, it consisted of two specializations, Teacher Leadership and Educational Administration. In order to provide options for students in diverse fields, the specializations Higher Education and Transformational Leadership were rolled out soon thereafter so some candidates did transition to a specialization that better suited their profession and goals. Initial Degree Completion Plans that were sent to students in the first few cohorts did have an error with the EDDR 698 dissertation courses in Phase IV (the courses were listed as semester long courses but the corresponding dates only refected 8 week sessions). Once the error was uncovered, candidates were informed of the error and were provided with a corrected Degree Completion Plan. There have been many changes to the program to address the inconsistencies that you mention to ensure that candidates feel supported and guided throughout their doctoral journey. Please feel free to contact Student Services at email@example.com or 888-628-2752 and ask to speak with a manager.
We are so sorry you are experiencing difficulties. To confirm, each credit hour in the Ed.D. program is $880. The first year of the program consists of 21 credits which comes out to $18,480. Please feel free to contact Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-628-2752 and ask to speak with a manager.
