Students planning to deposit theses or dissertations for May 2016 graduation are reminded of the following deadlines:

  • April 22: Last day to complete a doctoral dissertation deposit
  • April 29: Last day to complete a master’s thesis deposit

Because deposit deadlines are firm, students are strongly encouraged to submit the thesis or dissertation to the Graduate College at least one week before the deadline in order to allow sufficient time to make and re-submit all requested corrections. For May graduation, any corrections requested by the Graduate College and all required deposit materials must be submitted to the Thesis Office no later than 5:00 p.m. on the day of the deposit deadline.

Visit our website for further information about the deposit process and links to downloadable deposit checklists.
