Step Four: Submitting the Thesis or Dissertation to the Department

As directed by the department chair, six weeks before graduation the student should submit a copy of his/her thesis or dissertation to the department chair for review. (If the department chair is a member of the thesis or dissertation committee, less time may be required.) This will allow time for (1) the department chair to read and comment on the thesis or dissertation and (2) the student to make the any necessary corrections to the document.


The student will also need to provide the department chair with the Certificate of Approval previously signed by the thesis or dissertation committee members and the thesis or dissertation Chair.

 

Checklist

  • A corrected copy of the thesis or dissertation with corrections required by the thesis or dissertation committee was submitted to the department chair.
  • Original Certificate of Approval was submitted to the department chair.
