Section 1.5: Important information from the Office of Graduate Studies

Subsection 1.5.2 Thesis format check, thesis binding, depositing thesis copies, and electronic submission

You should submit to the director of Graduate Admissions the first 10 pages of the thesis including the preliminary pages three weeks prior to graduation for a format check. (Examples of preliminary pages can be found at the beginning of Subsection 3.3.1.)

The original thesis (1) and four (4) copies must then be submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies and Research for review and acceptance before being submitted for binding. The student is responsible for paying all binding costs. The student will be notified by the Office of Graduate Studies and Research when the copy of the thesis is ready to be picked up.

The UNK Library will retain two (2) bound copies of each thesis, one for the Archives Collection and one for the Circulating Book Collection. One copy will be given to the thesis advisor, one (1) to the department, and the student will receive a copy. Students may submit additional copies to be bound at their expense.

An electronic version of the thesis also will be submitted for to ProQuest CSA's UMI Dissertation Publishing at http://www.etdadmin.com/unk. The website will provide you with step-by-step instructions. These are also provided in this document in Section 4.3 titled Library/Electronic Submission.
