Important note for doctoral students:

You should not include amended forms of a degree (e.g., PhD-C or PhD (c)) next to your name to indicate partial completion of your program, nor should you use ABD (all-but-dissertation).  These designations are not accepted credentials, and using them may confuse others, including prospective employers.  Also, these amended forms are not recognized by Walden University.
