Thesis Information

The following information will guide you in preparing and submitting your thesis. All Master's Degree Plan A students should review all of the following sections:

  • Submit your thesis through Digital Commons, the university's institutional repository.
    • Your electronically submitted thesis will be reviewed by The Graduate School administrator for format compliance and you will receive notification if any revisions need to be made.
