Kudos to Mona Hall for researching and validating our house style! Ongoing PhD studies are not listed on the Copyright and Credits page of the course guide; therefore, do not include credentials such as:

  • Title (year): Name, PhD(c)
  • Title (year): Name, PhD(candidate)
  • Title (year): Name, PhD(ABD)
  • Title (year): Name, PhD(all but dissertation)

See also APA’s  The Misuse of PhD(c) and How to List Your Credentials and Title When You Publish.

Feel free to list “PhD candidate” in the long-form written bio for course developers.
