Authors should prepare and make their dissertation submissions well in advance of the deadlines.
If you have any questions about the status of your milestones, accuracy of your reading committee, or your candidacy end date, please see the student services officer in your department.
Students with unmet financial obligations resulting in the placement of a hold will not receive a transcript, statement of completion, degree certificate, or diploma until the hold is released by Student Financial Services.
Before submission of the dissertation, students should be sure that their department has documented any changes in the composition of the reading committee, and that any relevant milestones have been completed in our system.
All three of these requirements must be satisfied before you can submit your dissertation electronically, via Axess.
