Final Submissions

The dissertation defense and any changes recommended by the dissertation committee must occur prior to the final submission.

Submit your dissertation through the ProQuest ETD Administrator. Remember to complete the Survey of Earned Doctorates.

The final version of your dissertation is due no later than 4:30 p.m. Friday, four weeks before the end of the quarter. Earlier submissions are welcome!

Please use the Dissertation Checklist as you move through the submission process on the ETD Administrator.

If you experience technical difficulties with your final submission, please contact the Dissertation Office or ETD Tech Support as soon as possible.

After submitting your dissertation, you should not make any changes unless requested to do so by Dissertation Office staff or by your graduate program administrator.

Check your email on a daily basis.  We will let you know if we need additional material from you, and we will let you know when your submission is complete and in order.
