Spring 2018 Deadlines:

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 noon 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.
Last Day to Submit Theses without Re-Enrolling
If you submit your thesis by this deadline, you will not have to re-enroll in Thesis 799 for the following semester, but you must re-apply for graduation. Exception: If a majority of the formatting requirements as specified in the SDSU Dissertation & Thesis Manual and department style guide (including source documentation) have not been followed, your thesis will be rejected and you will be required to re-enroll.
If you have any questions regarding the reviewing criteria, refer to this link. This is the actual checklist used during the review process. If any area is marked (indicating an error), the thesis will be returned to the student for corrections.
