Doctoral Dissertation Guidelines and Procedures

Submit your dissertation for approval after final revisions have been made.

Subject Librarians from the Mardigian Library complete the final check of dissertation formatting once content has been defended and any revisions required by the committee have been made. If any embargo is being requested, the additional embargo forms should also be submitted. Deep Blue requires an ORCID number in order to submit the dissertation.   

Please note: the deadline to submit the final electronic copy accompanied by the Dissertation Submission Form is ten business days before the "Last Day to Complete All Requirements" date published on the Registrar's Office site.  

To maintain the usability and appearance of your work, please review Best Practices for Producing High Quality PDF Files and Preparing Your Manuscript Guide. Electronic submission ensures the highest quality copy of your manuscript, with color images preserved.  The most important consideration when submitting electronically is to be sure that fonts are embedded in the PDF submitted.
