ETD Approval Process

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 1 and May 15 for Master's candidates.
  • Doctoral candidates are required to complete the Survey of Earned Doctorates in order to graduate.

It is highly recommended that the dissertation or thesis be uploaded AFTER the faculty adviser has signed off on the final, approved version of the thesis or dissertation and at least on one week prior to the established ETD approval deadline to allow to make any and all formatting changes that may be required. In this section you will find the following information:
