Important Graduation Deadlines

 All students should submit their finalized* thesis or dissertation to the Graduate School by the following deadlines:


By November 26, 2018 for the December 15, 2018 Graduation

By April 19, 2019 for the May 11, 2019 Graduation

By July 29, 2019 for the August 12, 2019 Graduation


*All papers should be submitted to the Graduate School electronically for a format check at least one week prior to the final submittal date. This will prevent the unnecessary reprinting of documents or other delays if errors in formatting are found.  If you have questions about a deadline or think you may not meet a deadline, please contact the Graduate School as soon as possible.  

Please note:  You do not have to wait until after your defense to have the format check performed.  You will just need to make sure that any revisions required by your committee are incorporated and all table of contents, tables, figures, page numbering, etc., are revised to reflect any changes.
