Theses & Dissertations

Due dates for completing your degree, applying to graduate, and submitting your thesis/dissertation can be found on our  commencement information page  You should also check out our Guide to Preparing Theses and Dissertations  for more information on how to submit. Please be sure to only use the most current guide off the website. Do not use an old guide or another student’s paper for formatting and information.
The thesis or dissertation needs to follow the style guide of your discipline as well as following  The Guide to Thesis and Dissertations.
This office requires that a preliminary copy of the master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation be presented to the Graduate School to check for formatting problems and adherence to page numbering specifications. This will save you time, hassle, and money in the event that any changes are needed. Do NOT use a previous master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation as a sole model for your paper!
