Step Five: Submitting the Thesis or Dissertation to the College

If college Dean approval of a thesis or dissertation is required by the degree program, the student should submit a copy of his/her thesis or dissertation to review in accordance with the department timeline. The student is required to submit a clean, corrected copy of his/her thesis or dissertation to the college Dean. It is important to allow appropriate time for (1) the college Dean to read and comment on the thesis or dissertation and (2) the student to make any the necessary corrections to the document. The student must upload all final documents to Digital Commons by the upload deadline posted on the Graduate School Thesis and Dissertation Procedures website.
