    Just focus and make the time to do the work. Dr. Hammond who is the dean of the program and one of your professors you will see at least once every semester is very picky about a lot of things so like I've said before please master APA and business style writing. He only wants the facts and material that is supported by research and academic sources. No Fluff or BS in papers or case studies.

    These were my major concerns with the program. If you're bringing in enough credits to hit 90 and learning how to write a paper for publication, I think that will satisfy many of the detractors. Not the right program for me at all (due to its length, and requiring synchronous classes, and because I'm not in the healthcare field lol) but I hope it works out for all of you!

    I asked Dr. Hammond about the 90 credit requirement to graduate (my MBA is 48 credits, this is 36 credits = 84 credits). He told me not to worry about the minutiae of the requirements. He told me that I would graduate from the program in one year. How will I get to the 90 credit requirement in one year? Maybe I am just overthinking this.

    Doctorates don't actually have to be 90 credits. I did some looking around recently (not for this program), where I learned a PhD at Kansas State requires 90 credit hours, at the University of Missouri 72 and 52 at the University of Georgia. So I think they might design it to be 90 but if you come up with less than that, not a big deal.

    Well as Dean, he is the man! The DHA is referred to as a "professional doctorate." Like I said before, there is a lot of writing and many of us have been out of school for decades. A lot of talent with experience in industry bringing a wealth of experience with age of students from mid thirties to 60s. I have definitely had to come up to speed on APA style and business writing of memorandums and executive summaries. PM me, if any questions.

    Sorry, I wish I was qualified to comment about institutional graduation requirements or accreditation matters, but I'm not. My only comment would be, if you get accepted then the school has to provide a pathway to graduate.

    You are all amazing. I appreciate all the feedback. Guess that I am just a little anxious thinking about going back to school after three years. The MBA that I did took so much of my time and energy to complete. I am sure that everything will be fine.

    Thank you guys!

    How is everyone doing in their classes? May 4 is coming quick - getting a little nervous. Finding out how others are doing will hopefully ease my nervousness.

    Have a great week!
