Thesis, MBA reports, JAP, capstones
Graduation is September 22
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 will be July 11, 12, and 13. A recording and handouts for DL students will be posted here at the end of July. In-person brief attendance is mandatory for resident students during their graduation quarter.
