During your graduation quarter, you are required to submit your thesis, dissertation, MBA report, JAP or capstone to Thesis Processing for review. We highly recommend watching the thesis brief as the first step in the process. In fact, in-person brief attendance is a requirement for all resident students during their graduation quarter. Briefs for June graduates have been held; watch the video here. Also, visit the Submission Process page for a step-by-step guide to processing your thesis that includes recommended timelines.

Turnitin checkup

All unrestricted thesis drafts are checked for originality via Turnitin (TII). Results will be provided confidentially to students and their advisors, providing ample time to correct potential plagiarism concerns before the Final Draft is submitted. Coaches at the Graduate Writing Center are also standing by to help students improve citation and paraphrasing if such issues are identified in their drafts. Potential plagiarism cases identified after signatures have been obtained on the Thesis Release Form will be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office. Questions? Find answers here.
