Spring 2021: 161 dissertations anticipated

Sixth Week: By now, students graduating in June should have moved through a few of the Submission steps in the ETD Administrator, completing the Publishing information section and providing Dissertation/Thesis details in the About my dissertation/thesis section.

See the Quarterly Timeline for detailed instructions, and let us know if you have any questions by this Friday instead of waiting until next week when final versions of dissertations are due. The dissertation deadline is Friday, May 14, at 4:30 p.m.

Review the University-Wide Requirements for the Ph.D. Dissertation before uploading your dissertation, and don't forget to complete the Survey of Earned Doctorates.

Ask the Dissertation Office if you have questions or would like assistance.

The Dissertation Office provides information on the University's dissertation policies. We help students understand dissertation formatting and publication requirements, and we assist with the submission process. We support graduate program administrators as they manage dissertation submissions and departmental approval, and we audit completed dissertation submissions to ensure they meet University requirements. We coordinate dissertation publishing and embargoes with ProQuest and with Knowledge@UChicago. Our office is Room 100B on the first floor of Regenstein Library, but for the time being we are working remotely, and our services will continue online.
