The deadline for FINAL APPROVAL of an electronic Thesis or Dissertation by th e Graduate School is TODAY at 5:00 p.m. To accept a document for publishi ng on or before the deadline means that the student’s document has been re viewed by a graduate school employee, the document has been determined to be formatted correctly AND all required paperwork has been turned in to the Graduate School PRIOR TO the deadline date and time. Deadline day is not just the day that the document is to be submitted via ProQuest for the first time. It is the day where all of the requirements must be complete d. Chances are, if a document is submitted on deadline day for the first time, the document will most likely be accepted for graduation in the ne xt semester.
