ESP Graduate Student UDTS deadlines and COS Signature Luncheon

Thesis and Dissertation submission deadlines

Format Review Deadline: In order to be eligible to graduate in Spring 2018, you must receive an email from our office on or by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 27 stating that your formatting is in good shape, and your Format Review is over. If you do not receive said email from our office on or by that date/time, then you will not be eligible to graduate in Spring 2018.

Final Submission Deadline: In order to be eligible to graduate in Spring 2018, you must turn in the final copy of your thesis/dissertation and all necessary paperwork to our office on or by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4. If we do not receive these materials on or by that date/time, then you will not be eligible to graduate in Spring 2018.

When we refer to the “final copy” of your thesis/dissertation, we mean the version of your document that fulfills all three of the following criteria:

  1. You have passed the Format Review.
  2. You have successfully defended (if a defense is part of your program).
  3. Your committee has approved your content. 

Once you have fulfilled all three of those criteria, you will be ready to turn in the final copy of your document to our office.
