Frequently Asked Questions

What format does my thesis/dissertation have to be uploaded in?

  • The Electronic Theses & Dissertations Website accepts all forms of submissions, including Word Document (.doc) and PDF (.pdf).

How do I view the edits that I need to make?

  • You will receive an email when the College of Graduate Studies has reviewed your thesis/dissertation for the format check. Click on the link provided in the email to view the corrections that need to be made. The link in the email will send you to a site where you can view the requested revisions as well as revise your thesis/dissertation. Click on the “View decisions” to see the formatting errors. The following page it directs you to shows all the decision letters that were sent about formatting errors. Click on the subject link to view the email. Click on the link after “Attachment”.

How do I submit a revision?

I still have outstanding thesis/dissertation requirements on DegreeWorks even though I have submitted my thesis/dissertation. Why is this?

  • Once your thesis/dissertation has been approved for the format check by the College of Graduate Studies, your committee members must also verify your thesis/dissertation. Once all of the committee members have verified, the thesis/dissertation is sent to the library to be posted in the library repository. When it is posted in the repository, the outstanding thesis/dissertation requirements on DegreeWorks will be updated to complete.
