The Format Review deadline for Fall 2022 is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 28.
In order to be eligible to graduate under the Fall 2022 semester, you must receive an email from UDTS or or by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 28 stating that we have approved your document's formatting, and that your Format Review is over.
Whether you receive that email two months before you defend or at exactly 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 28 is immaterial.
However, you MUST receive an email notification from UDTS on or by that date/time to remain eligible to graduate in Fall 2022. In doing so, you fulfill the Format Review deadline. If you cannot do so, then you will graduate in Spring 2023 at the earliest.
The Final Submission deadline for the regular Fall 2022 Semester is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 2.
In order to be eligible to graduate under the Fall 2022 Semester, all Master's students writing theses and all Doctoral students writing dissertations must turn in the final copies of their theses/dissertations and all necessary materials to UDTS on or by that date/time.
By "final copy," we are referring to the version of your thesis/dissertation that fulfills all of the following criteria:
- UDTS has reviewed and approved your document's formatting through the Format Review;
- You have successfully defended (if a Defense is a requirement for your degree/discipline);
- And your committee has approved your content.
If you do not turn in the final copy of your thesis/dissertation and all necessary materials on or by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 2, then you will graduate in Spring 2023 at the earliest.
All meetings with UDTS will take place virtually. Please visit our LibCal Scheduler to set up an appointment.
We host workshops on the Process you must complete in order to graduate on time, and on the Interactive (Word) Template. Please visit the University Libraries Workshops & Events site to view and sign up for sessions.
We are always available via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about collecting signatures for your Signature Sheet and/or Embargo Request Form, please email us, and we will help you craft the best solution for you, your committee, and your college/school/department.
