Important Graduation Deadlines

The dates below are the final dates for accepting any new theses or dissertations for format review. 


By November 25, 2019 for the December 14, 2019 Graduation

By April 17, 2020 for the May 9, 2020 Graduation

By July 17, 2020 for the August 10, 2020 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.
