*Draft reviews are optional. The draft review service is available during the first few weeks of each quarter, not later and not during the interim. If you plan to submit your dissertation at the beginning of a quarter, you may want to request a draft review during the previous quarter, even if your draft is incomplete.

**Please note that departments have additional deadlines. Contact your department to be sure you meet departmental requirements. Contact your dean of students with questions about registration or divisional requirements for graduation. The dissertation defense and any changes recommended by the dissertation committee must occur before you ask for departmental approval. You must upload the completed and signed Departmental Approval Form before you file your dissertation, and you must file before the 4:30 p.m. submission deadline in order to graduate that quarter.
