ETD Approval Process

ETD Submission/Approval Process
The University uses the ProQuest ETD Administrator to facilitate the submission/approval process of GW electronic theses and dissertations. By submitting to the ProQuest ETD Administrator, the final and approved version of your thesis or dissertation will be deposited to ProQuest's Dissertation and Theses Online Database and the University's institutional repository, GW ScholarSpace

A dissertation or thesis should only be uploaded AFTER the faculty adviser has signed off on the final, approved version of the thesis or dissertation. It is highly recommended you upload your thesis or dissertation at least one week prior to the established ETD approval deadline to allow sufficient time to make any required formatting changes to your document. Note: a single formatting review takes about 2 business days to complete.

The submission and review process for both Dissertations and Master's Theses are similar except for some minor differences:

  • For Spring Graduation, the ETD approval deadline for Doctoral candidates is April 15 and May 1 for Master's candidates.
  • Doctoral candidates are required to complete the Survey of Earned Doctorates in order to graduate.
