    The deadline for submitting your thesis and dissertations is extended to April 13, 2020

    For UAF graduate students graduating in Spring 2020, the Graduate School has extended the deadline for dissertation and thesis submission to ProQuest from April 7 to April 13, 2020.  
    We recognize that committee members and department chairs are diligently working to move courses to an online format, among other duties that have become necessary as implications of the COVID-19 outbreak continue to unfold. Remember that Department Chairs and Deans have their own internal deadlines and you need to be sure to meet those as well.     While we have extended the deadline, please do not wait to submit your work. Dissertations and theses are reviewed in the order that they are received. The faster we receive your documents, the sooner any necessary changes can be returned to you for correction.

Good news! 

We now offer one-on-one thesis formatting review sessions; primarily intended for those who are planning on graduating in the current semester; and as such, your thesis should be in near final draft form.
