Thesis, Dissertation, and Report Submission Update

The University license to Blackboard will expire at the end of this semester, so the Graduate School is switching this week to Canvas ( for thesis, dissertation, and report submission.  In support of this transition, the Graduate School will host a seminar on Thursday, March 15th at 2pm (rescheduled due to inclement weather on the original date).  Please register to attend and receive confirmation of the location.

Note that this seminar will only cover the important changes with switching to Canvas. All graduate students will be loaded into Canvas this week.  If you can’t make the seminar, slides will be available online, and a blog tutorial stepping you through the submission process is currently available online.

Additionally, the Degree completion form has been recently updated.  Please discontinue using any old versions you may have previously saved.  The form adds our new programs, and has changed the binding options for theses, dissertations, and reports.

Students who have started submitting documents in Blackboard should continue to do so if they plan to graduate this semester.

Questions?  Please contact Debra Charlesworth.
