The initial submission of the thesis to the thesis office begins the official examination process. In order to meet a particular graduation date, you must submit your thesis to the thesis office at any time before the specified deadline set out in the academic calendar, and at least 6 weeks prior to your defence date (8 weeks for gina cody engineering students). It should be noted that some programs have established deadlines earlier than those of the thesis office.
A checklist will be emailed to you from the Thesis Office confirming your submission. At this time, you will be notified on any formatting issues. Corrections must be made before your thesis submission on Spectrum.
Extension of the thesis deadline
If you need an extension of the thesis deadline, a formal request must be made to the Thesis Office with the approval of your supervisor or Graduate Program Director one week before the actual deadline date. You must submit this request by email to email@example.com
