NCU offered exactly what I wanted in a school: Over the years, I have read the comments about NCU on here and intentionally decided to wait until graduating to provide my own opinion as someone who successfully completed a doctoral degree.
Grade and Dissertation Progress Greetings. I trust you are fine. I would like to bring my case to you, sir. I have been in the doctoral program for a very long time. To date, I have had a total of 4 chairs of my dissertation committee. My case needs your attention urgently because whatever I have tried has not worked.
Sir, right now I feel like I am regressing. Three years ago I completed successfully all my coursework, put dissertation committee together and was making good progress but my work has almost come to a standstill after Dr.
Welch left in the middle of my methodology class.
The committee members are still waiting and wondering what is going on with my work. Dr Welch,the first chair of my dissertation left the university abruptly but I only learned of it late in the process when my work got struck. If I had known, I could have looked for a new chair but picked on the late Dr.
I found out that he was very ill and we were not very compatible. He was not very conversant with my subject and was very ill at the time and later died.
I requested a change of chair through Dr.
Cozby who transferred me to Dr. Perry who was coming to replace him, he volunteered to be my chair. I was stunned when academic adviser informed me that was placed on probation for failing methodology class twice and that I must take English Class. I inquired from the members of my committee and none of them did not know what was going on.
The only thing the committee had asked me to do was to get a dissertation editor, which I did. Welch recommended her editors who worked with me. I have all the emails and documents from all the parties involved to show all that has taken place.
I protested the decision to take the class and asked for a hearing but Dr. Perry made it clear that if I did not take the English class then I would be out of the program.
Based on my committee recommendation and the fact that I had finished all my coursework. I assumed that the class will focus on my dissertation.
To remain in the program, I paid for the English course bought the textbook and read and worked on some areas I thought could improve my writing. The professor herself does not have a doctorate degree so she could not help me with my dissertation.
Perry as my new chair was also very busy and ill, he never released my proposal to the committee, he read my proposal and assured me that it will go to the committee but after 6 almost six months he passed me to Dr.
Hunter who is my current chair. He took over in September and up to now, I am waiting for him to finish reading the document. Perry six months ago and he requested Dr. Hunter to take over because he was not doing well. How can I fail when I am told to wait first it was Dr.
Perry and now Dr. I had joined NCU to improve my skills as critical incident debriefing professional. I am already a supervisor with Red Cross as a mental health disaster professional with advanced certification with CISM and works with both governmental and private business as a critical incident specialist.
I have two master degrees and licensure as an LPCC.
