Master's Thesis Deadlines 2017-2018

Thesis hours registration: 

Important note for students-- these deadlines are when your program needs to have submitted your forms to the dean's office. You and your advisor must sign off on thesis registration with enough time for the department chair to review the registration request and submit their approval to the dean's office by the date below. It is strongly recommended, therefore, that students and advisors initiate this paperwork by the end of the semester before the thesis hours will be taken. 

Summer 2017: (Important NOTE- summer thesis hours must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs and should only be requested in rare emergencies): by FRIDAY, MAY 5, 2017 for Summmer IA and by FRIDAY JUNE 16, 2017 for Summer II.

Account creation for electronic thesis submission:

This deadline is simply to make sure students have successfully accessed the submission system. Account creation does not require a completed thesis. Students can access the ETD submission system as early as they want, but we request that accounts for submission in a given semester or term be established no later than the deadline.
