Dissertations/theses are to be submitted to the Dissertation Office via email after the dissertation/thesis defense, and after the committee is satisfied with your final changes. Please have your program director (or dissertation chair in CEIS) send the final, approved PDF document to: email@example.com, in addition to your signed signature page (as a separate PDF). Ask them to include your name, ID#, the program you are graduating from, and a statement that the document has been checked for plagiarism.
After the defense you need to do the following items:
|Summer 2023 Graduation||Fall 2023 Graduation|
|Dissertations||July 6, 2023||November 16, 2023|
|Master's Theses||July 13, 2023||November 23, 2023|
Once your final copy has been submitted to the dissertation office, we do the following items:

*If you want a personal printed copy, please order it through ProQuest.
Please note: Before 2020, students were required to have copies printed for the university, and this was charged to their student accounts (5 for Seminary PhD/ThD students, 4 for College of Education PhD students, 4 for DNP students, 3 for all Master's theses). Personal copies were an additional expense. As of 2020, we no longer print theses/dissertations and the requirement that the student pay for print copies for the university is no longer in effect. If you graduated before 2020, your dissertation/thesis was printed and charged to your student account.
