  • The M.S. thesis defense should occur at least 2 weeks prior to commencement.
  • The final, post-defense, graduate advisory committee approved version of the M.S. thesis must be uploaded to ProQuest no later than 5 business days before the last day of finals. It is recommended to submit a copy of the thesis to the Graduate Programs Director prior to submission to ProQuest to have the formatting checked to avoid additional delays that can occur when a submission must be returned due to formatting errors. All such errors must be corrected before the student's thesis can be approved.
