I still have outstanding thesis/dissertation requirements on Degree Works even though I have submitted my thesis/dissertation. Once your thesis/dissertation has been approved for the format check by the College of Graduate Studies, your committee members must also verify your thesis/dissertation.Once all of the committee members have verified, the thesis/dissertation is sent to the library to be posted in the library repository.The SMARTech ETD collection also includes dissertations printed just before 2005 in the former Institute of Paper Science.Electronic submission of theses and dissertations continues to be mandatory since spring 2004.Students must submit the SMARTech Repository Agreement form when submitting all theses and dissertations.Upon the request from the student along with the consent from the student’s consultant, an ETD can routinely be withheld from circulation for just one year.
