Deadlines for graduating students

SPRING 2015 THESIS SUBMISSION  (January 20-March 27).

Important news for Spring 2015 thesis submission: The deadline for spring submissions (March 27) has been extended by 17 days from last spring (March 10).  This was approved by the University Graduate Committee (April 22, 2014) to allow students more time to complete thesis requirements.  There will be no time given beyond March 27 for Spring 2015 graduation.

Students who cannot meet this deadline may submit by a priority summer deadline (Monday, May 4, 5:00 p.m.).  If students complete all thesis requirements, submit the thesis by May 4, and submit a completed Graduate Degree Clearance form to the Graduate Office by May 15, they may apply to graduate in the summer ($35) without having to register for continuation units.

Follow the steps below to submit your thesis for Spring 2015.
