Upload your final copy in ProQuest and submit the Outcome of Defense form and Final Deposit Checklist to Hovey Hall 309 before the deadlines. The Graduate School will examine your final draft for compliance with formats. If any changes are required to the final draft, you will need to make them in time to meet the Registrar’s Office deadlines for finalizing graduation. Our staff reviews final deposits in the order they are received. So, it may take several weeks to hear about your corrections. Check your ISU e-mail account daily until your thesis/dissertation has been finalized.
If you are unable to make all corrections in time to meet the Registrar’s Office deadlines, your graduation date will move to the next semester. Providing that you have already completed all required thesis/dissertation credit hours and have maintained continuous enrollment since your proposal was accepted, you will not be charged additional tuition or fees for the new semester as long as your final deposit is approved before the first day of classes. If you do not complete the corrections before the first day of classes, you must maintain 1 audit hour of continuous registration until corrections are complete and you are finalized.
Your graduation will be finalized once all Graduate School requirements are completed and the Registrar’s Office reviews and approves all graduation requirements.
If you are a doctoral student and you have completed your degree, the Graduate School requests that you fill out the online national Survey of Earned Doctorates.
