Spring 2019 Graduation

Make sure that you have submitted an Application for Advancement to Candidacy and Graduate form, or submit one if you have not already.

For assistance with thesis and project formatting, you can enroll in our Canvas Course.

A courtesy format review is highly recommended. A courtesy review of a draft can identify and head off issues that might later jeopardize a final thesis or project approval. Theses and projects can be submitted for a courtesy review to until Monday, April 29th. 

Submit your final thesis or project to Digital Commons for committee approval. SUBMIT EARLY (at least one business day before the deadline) to allow your committee members time to electronically register their approval before the deadline: Monday, May 13th. 

Summer 2019 Thesis Submission

The thesis and project submission process handout for Summer 2019 can be found here.

The process for submitting a thesis or a project in the summer is very similar to submitting in the fall or spring. Make sure that you have applied to Advancement to Candidacy and Graduation. You can enroll in a project formatting Canvas course to save hours of correcting format errors.

Please keep in mind the Courtesy Format Review deadline (July 11, 2019) and the Final Submission deadline (July 25, 2019). Good luck and have an amazing summer.
