Graduate students have the option of submitting their thesis or dissertation electronically or in paper. We strongly encourage submission electronically via the UMI ETD system, but we will continue to accept paper submissions. Students are responsible for submitting a manuscript that adheres to our manual for paper or electronic submissions. Degree candidates should carefully review all instructions and guidance on this website well in advance of the relevant submission deadline.
Special Collections and Archives staff review each manuscript for adherence to formatting standards and accept it upon approval. Provided a student has met all other requirements, this is the final step prior to being awarded the graduate degree. Congratulations!
