After the defense, the student must submit an electronic copy of the dissertation on line to the Graduate School. The submission website requires students to choose among publishing and copyrighting services offered by ProQuest UMI, but the University permits students to make whichever choices they prefer. Students are asked to submit a Survey of Earned Doctorates separately. The degree program is responsible for delivering the final approval form, signed by the committee members at the defense and then by the program Chair, to the Graduate School. Students who defend their dissertations successfully have not completed their Ph.D. requirements; they finish earning the degree only when their dissertation submission has been accepted by the Graduate School.
