WMU THESIS DEADLINES
Submit defended dissertation to the Graduate College by the deadline for graduation submission deadlines. I need to put together my committee so I can proceed with my thesis or dissertation proposal. Join us April 16, 17, 18, and 19, to present and defend your thesis, and stick around to attend other presentations! All members must have either full or associate membership in the graduate faculty. The information is intended as a guide to completing your degree requirements.
The thesis topic will vary depending on the field of study. Please do not abbreviate. Please make sure your department has forwarded the original program and any revisions that may have been made. Please note, doctoral graduates receive their diploma at the ceremony, therefore they cannot walk early like master’s or specialist graduates, as those students receive a decorative representation of their diploma at the ceremony. Doctoral graduates are the only students who receive their actual diploma at the ceremony; undergraduates and master’s graduates receive a commemorative diploma tube and their official diploma is mailed at a later date. Any incomplete grades must be removed.
