Thesis/Project Information

Welcome! Congratulations on reaching this final portion of your journey as a graduate student. We have compiled resources to help you during the process of writing and submitting your thesis. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions on preparing for your thesis project. We recommend you look over the checklist before beginning so you are aware of our formatting expectations.

For graduation in the fall and spring semesters, a student’s defense must be held before the last day of a semester. The student then has 20 calendar days after the last day of the semester to submit their final thesis/project document to the Office of Graduate Studies and 42 calendar days after the last day of the semester for all other graduation requirements to be completed and verified.
