Thesis hours registration

Important note for students: these deadlines pertain to the date your program needs to have your forms submitted to the academic college dean's office. You and your advisor must sign off on thesis registration with enough time for the department chair to review the registration request and submit their approval to the dean's office by the date below. It is strongly recommended, therefore, that students and advisors initiate this paperwork before the end of the semester. 

Spring 2020: Friday, Dec. 13

Summer 2019: Friday, May 3 (Important note: summer thesis completion must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs.)

Fall 2019: Friday, Aug. 16

Account creation for electronic thesis submission

This deadline is simply to make sure students have successfully accessed the submission system. Account creation does not require a completed thesis. Students can access the ETD submission system as early as they want, but we request that accounts for submission in a given semester or term be established no later than the deadline.

Summer 2019: Thursday, July 11 (Important note: summer thesis completion must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs.)

Electronic thesis submission

Note: for each semester or term, this deadline is three weeks before grades are due, which is the last day that the College of Graduate Studies and Research can verify to Graduate Records that the thesis is accepted.

Spring 2019: Thursday, April 23

Summer 2019: Thursday, July 25 (Important note: summer thesis completion must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs.)
