Submitting your thesis to Montezuma Publishing (MP) by this deadline guarantees that MP will review your thesis and return it to you for corrections, if necessary, at least one week prior to the Completion deadline. Theses that are resubmitted for review will be given priority status but still require a full review. Meeting this deadline for thesis review allows you to have the best possibility for graduation during the current semester.
Your thesis must be reviewed* and approved, by the 3:45pm deadline, with all fees paid for publishing the library requirements and any required department copies in order to graduate during the current semester. Students missing this final deadline will be required to reapply for graduation for the term in which they expect to graduate.
* Be advised the initial review can take up to 3-4 weeks.
