Thesis/Dissertation Submission


Theses and dissertations are submitted to the Graduate School electronically. When you submit your thesis or dissertation, the Graduate School is accepting it as a finished document; the Thesis and Dissertation Editor will review the document for format problems only. Once the editor has reviewed the formatting of your thesis or dissertation, you will receive an email to let you know whether any corrections are required. You will then have 1 week to make the changes and upload the revised version.

Final items submitted to the Graduate School

1. Upload your thesis or dissertation to the UMI/ProQuest ETD site (see Instructions for Submission of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) for full details)

2. The following items are submitted to the Graduate School AFTER uploading your document and prior to the final graduation deadline:
