To get credit for the dissertation research, you enroll first in ASE X99R and then in ASE X99W until you graduate. If you have not been admitted to Candidacy, you can register for ASE X97K. The 'X' can be taken for 3, 6, or 9 credit hours per semester.


Keep your committee informed about your research progress, perhaps through an annual seminar.


Guidelines for the format of the dissertation can be obtained from the Graduate School under Graduation Packets/Doctoral.

Dissertation Submittal

All dissertations are required to be submitted electronically. The electronic signature sheet should have the names listed but not be signed. A paper signature sheet with signatures is also required.
