Doctoral Dissertations & Master's Theses
ATTENTION: CurateND is undergoing an infrastructure update and a new dissertation and thesis submission portal is under construction. We anticipate this update will be completed by early to mid January 2024. Dissertation and thesis submissions for spring semester will resume when the new submission portal is available. Thank you for your patience.
Graduate students who will be submitting a dissertation or research master’s thesis should familiarize themselves with the Graduate School’s formatting requirements and deadlines for submission. Regulations for the appointment of a research director, topic approval, the committee formation, exam and defense arrangements, and more are available in the Graduate Bulletin of Information.
If you have questions regarding the formatting or submission of your dissertation or thesis, need to submit a formatting check or documentation, or have questions related to a past dissertation or thesis, please contact the Graduate School’s dissertation editor via the following methods:
