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 March graduates have been held; a recording for DL students will be available here at the end of January. In-person brief attendance is mandatory for resident students during their graduation quarter.
The submission process page offers a step-by-step guide that includes recommended timelines.

Got writer's block?
The Graduate Writing Center can help. Sign up for one-to-one coaching and workshops such as Mark My Words (proofreading skills), Building Better Sentences, and Paraphrasing and Quoting Like a Pro. A writing coach can review your work and help you express your ideas clearly, powerfully, and concisely. Visit the Writing Center to make an appointment. See synopses of past thesis work.
All unrestricted thesis drafts are checked for originality via Turnitin (TII). Results are provided confidentially 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 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? Get answers here.
