Effective the Fall 2011 semester, the structure of the University Graduate School’s dissertation submission deadlines will be changing. The initial submission of the electronic dissertation now will be due by the 15th of the month from students wishing to graduate in that month.
As before, submissions will undergo format review within 3-5 business days of receipt. Students will receive an email notifying them of any required formatting corrections, and will be given a period of time to complete these requested changes, as well as to submit required paperwork and ensure Rs are removed from their transcripts. Typically, this second deadline will fall around the 27th of the month. Students should be aware that the dissertation submission is not considered final until they receive an email from the doctoral recorder stating that the dissertation has been accepted by the University Graduate School.
