Is your thesis ready to submit?

  1. Is this the FINAL version of your thesis?
    • Remember: you cannot replace your thesis with a later version. Be sure you have made all edits and corrections before uploading.
  2. Does your thesis have a title page?
    • See the tab above for a sample title page showing all the information we need.
  3. Has your file been saved as a PDF/A?
    • PDF/A is an archival PDF format that preserves the fonts and formatting in your thesis. PDF/A files show the “.pdf” file extension. Your thesis will not load unless it is a PDF/A. To convert from PDF to PDF/A, see the tab above.
  4. Have you saved your file with an appropriate file name?
    • Your file name cannot include any punctuation or periods other than one in “.pdf”.
    • Your file name cannot begin with a number.
