Submitting Your Thesis or Dissertation

This guide will walk you through the thesis/dissertation submission process from start (actually even a bit before) to finish.  It will lay out every step so you will know what to expect during the submission process and after your work has been successfully submitted. If at any time you are unsure of something or encounter a problem, feel free to contact the Thesis Office at for assistance.

Throughout this document, ETD stands for “electronic thesis/dissertation.”
