Please Note: For the Dr. competitions - Domestic accrediting bodies and issuing postsecondary institutions must be recognized by the United States Department of Education. The earned, accredited academic doctoral degree must be granted by a federally recognized postsecondary academic institution. The doctoral program must contain a minimum of 58 academic semester hours of study. For application and entry into these particular competitions, a domestic or foreign doctorate degree may not be an award/honorary in nature (e.g., honoris causa). A foreign earned, academic doctorate degree must be recognized as equivalent to a US doctorate a degree (e.g., by evaluation services such as World Education Services/WES).

Please Note: For the Dr. competitions - On April 26, 2022, it was proposed and approved by the DWP advisory board, "going forward with the 11/2022-10/2023 competition year, no national-level appointed title should be held two consecutive years by the same individual. Should there be extenuating circumstances [and the individual could not compete], which are deemed acceptable, the individual should be assigned an alternative title and the individual purchase their replacement sash, etc."  However, skipping a competition year is allowed (e.g., 2020 and 2022). The proposal was applied to the Dr. World international/country/national titles as that was the example provided in the proposal. But, the intention of the proposal was for all DWP titles to be considered. The proposal and approval were not documented as such. So, this oversight will be corrected on 10/23/2022, after the last competition of the 2022 calendar year, and going forward.
