Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Requirements

Dissertation students must submit the dissertation in electronic format. The policies, procedures, and submission links for this are presented in detail on the College of Graduate Studies website for The Electronic Thesis and Dissertation.

Following a successful dissertation defense, the candidate must make any corrections or changes to the dissertation that are required by the defense committee. The student must submit the dissertation as an electronic file (ETD) required by the College of Graduate Studies for format check by the format check deadline. After the document format has been completed, the electronic document is returned to the student. If format corrections are to be made, the student must make the changes and submit the final corrected electronic version to the College of Graduate Studies by the final submission deadline as posted for the semester. The student should check with his/her dissertation chair to determine if the dissertation committee chooses to re-review the document before final submission to the College of Graduate Studies. The final copy must also conform to the stylistic guidelines adopted by the academic unit established by the College of Graduate Studies.
