Are doctorate degrees that aren't PhDs taken seriously at all in academia?

e.g. the Doctor of Education (EdD), clinical doctorates for different disciplines

If I want transfer out of the current college I go to and my credits don't transfer? Will I have to retake those courses?

I've heard many stories of credits not transferring over after leaving a college. It's a scary idea to think of because then those classes were basically pointless. #transfer #collegecredits #college #college-advice
