Thesis, MBA reports, JAP, capstones:
Graduation is September 21
Our website has been updated to reflect the new thesis process, in which forms and milestones are tracked via each student's thesis dashboard in Python. Click here for help with the new thesis module.
During your graduation quarter, you are required to submit your thesis, dissertation, MBA report, JAP or capstone to Thesis Processing for review. Attending the thesis brief is the first step in the process. Briefs for September graduates have been held. In-person brief attendance is mandatory for resident students during their graduation quarter. A recording for DL students is posted here.
Our Submission Process page offers a step-by-step guide that includes recommended timelines.

All unrestricted drafts are checked for originality via iThenticate. Results are provided to students and their advisors, providing ample time to correct potential plagiarism concerns before the Final Draft is submitted. The Graduate Writing Center can help students improve citation and paraphrasing if such issues were identified. Potential plagiarism identified after the Thesis Release and Approval Form (TRAF) has been routed for departmental approvals and a Final Review request has been made will be forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.
