ETD Deadlines

***THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO GRADUATE SCHOOL GRADUATION DEADLINES***

Every Master Thesis and Doctoral student has 3 ETD deadlines to meet in sequential order:

THREE (3) ETD DEADLINES:

(1) ETD Review Deadline
(A choice of 2 review deadlines to pick from; 1. No Registration Required or 2. Registration Required. See below.)

(2) Final* Error-Free ETD Deadline
*The final deadline is ONLY for students who met the semester's ETD Review deadline. The review must take place before a final can be submitted. This is for students who met either the No Registration Required or Registration Required review deadlines)

(3) Final Committee Approval Deadline

CHOICE OF TWO (2) THESIS REVIEW DEADLINES:
There are 2 ETD Review Deadlines to choose from. The student is to choose ONE ETD Review Deadline for the ETD review.
(1) No Registration Required ETD Review Deadline
(2) Registration Required ETD Review Deadline

DEADLINE DEFINITIONS:

NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED ETD REVIEW DEADLINE: Date by which a thesis or dissertation student must unconditionally pass the final exam and submit for the ETD Review in order to avoid registering for the semester s/he is graduating in. Students meeting this deadline will not be allowed to register in the same academic program for any subsequent semester. The final ETD file is to be submitted before the Final ETD Approval Deadline and committee approval must be completed by the Final ETD Committee Approval Deadline.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED ETD REVIEW DEADLINE: Date by which a thesis or dissertation student must unconditionally pass the final exam and submit for the ETD Review while being registered for the semester s/he is graduating in. Students meeting this deadline will not be allowed to register in the same academic program for any subsequent semester. The final ETD file is to be submitted before the Final ETD Approval Deadline and committee approval must be completed by the Final ETD Committee Approval Deadline.

APPLY TO GRADUATE DEADLINE: Date by which all graduate students must apply to graduate in a given semester. A student must apply to graduate in order to participate in the graduation exercises, have their transcript posted, and receive a diploma.  Thesis and dissertation students must have also completed an ETD Review by this deadline; however, their graduation will still be contingent upon approval of the final ETD by the ETD Editor and Committee Approval by the respective deadlines.

Students may apply to graduate in MyPack Portal. Students are advised to apply to graduate before the defense is scheduled, but the application to graduate can be submitted at any time up until 5:00 p.m. on the Apply to Graduate deadline.

FINAL ERROR-FREE ETD DEADLINE (FOR BOTH REGISTRATION REQUIRED and NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED FINAL ETDS): Date by which a thesis or dissertation student who met that semester's review deadline (either the No Registration or Registration Required), must submit the final error-free ETD to the ETD Editor in order to graduate at the end of the semester. Graduation will still be contingent upon approval of the final ETD by the student’s advisory committee before the expiration of the Final ETD Committee Approval Deadline.

FINAL COMMITTEE APPROVAL DEADLINE (FOR BOTH REGISTRATION REQUIRED and NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED FINAL ETDS): Date by which a thesis or dissertation student must submit and have the final ETD approved by all members of their advisory committee in order to graduate at the end of the semester.

GRADUATION DATE: The date degrees are conferred. For fall and spring graduations, this is also the date of the graduation ceremony (there are no summer graduation ceremony-- summer grads may participate in the fall ceremony).
