D/T Submission Checklist
In order to meet Graduate School requirements for formal submission of a dissertation or thesis, your document and all accompanying materials must be submitted by 5 PM on the deadline date. If an adviser cannot provide an original signature by the due date, or if there will be any other problems meeting the deadline, your adviser must email John Lubker, the associate dean of students, with an extension request before the deadline.

This checklist assumes your manuscript’s formatting has been approved by the formatting editor. If you haven’t had the formatting checked, please submit a PDF or paper copy to the editor before proceeding. If the formatting of your formal submission does not match the requirements set by UMI/ProQuest and the Graduate School, your dissertation or thesis may not be accepted.
All checklist items are required unless otherwise specified. Checklist items can be completed in any order; we will not, however, accept a dissertation or signed title pages submitted prior to the defense.

The approval, cataloging and microfilming processes take time, so it may be several weeks before your dissertation becomes available in the University library system or on the UMI/ProQuest website. If there are any problems with your submission, the dissertation editor will contact you to resolve the issue.
If you have any concerns or questions about the status of your submission, please contact the dissertation editor, below.
Submit all signed title pages and inquiries to the formal submission editor:
