ETD Deadline Dates

Submission Deadline

  • Each semester has a deadline for the initial submission of theses and dissertations to ProQuest.  The deadline is generally two weeks prior to the final deadline.  Plan your defense accordingly.
  • The document submitted to ProQuest is expected to be a final version, meaning it has been successfully defended, corrections the committee wants have been made, and there are no more content changes.
  • The Graduate School will not accept documents for review for the current semester after 5:00PM ET on the submission deadline date.

Final Deadline

  • Each semester has a final deadline where documents have been accepted and delivered for publishing, all required paperwork has been turned in, all milestones have been completed and all degree audits have been completed.
  • Your document must be accepted and delivered to the publisher, ProQuest, by 5:00PM ET on the final deadline date.
