One week prior to your defense, electronically submit your thesis or professional paper (MS Word or PDF format) to The Graduate School. This is simply to check for formatting errors.
To submit your draft you can:
The Certificate of Approval form should be filled out and taken with you to your defense so signatures can be gathered. The Graduate School will get the Graduate Dean's signature for you.

Please name your document in the following format: Last Name_First Name_document type (Example: Doe_John_Thesis.pdf)
Your committee chair will submit your final thesis or professional paper (MS Word or PDF format), electronically to the Graduate School Office once your document has met all of the following criteria:
1.) Reviewed and approved for defense by the Graduate School
2.) Successfully defended
3.) Revisions made for your committee and the Graduate School
To submit the final you can:
Please ask your committee chair to include your name and whether the document is a draft or final copy in the subject line of the email. Submission of this electronic document by your committee chair will certify that your document has been reviewed and approved as the final document by all members of your committee.
The Graduate School will use this electronic document to compare and approve the copy that the student submits to UMI/Proquest (See step 4 below). UMI/Proquest then transfers the Dissertations to The Mansfield Library.
