Submission of Thesis

The Thesis and Dissertation Editor will review all theses and dissertations to ensure they adhere to The Fayetteville State University Graduate Programs Guide for the Preparation and Submission of Theses and Dissertations. (This document and The Thesis and Dissertation Checklist are posted on the Graduate Programs website). After the student has made the revisions requested in the thesis/dissertation oral defense and at least three (3) weeks before graduation, the student must submit one (1) copy of the thesis/dissertation to dean of the school or college for review by the Thesis and Dissertation Editor. The thesis/dissertation must be submitted with the Thesis/Dissertation Approval Form with all the required signatures. Once the Editor’s review is complete, the dean of school or college will send the Editor’s feedback to the student and Thesis/Dissertation Advisory Committee Chair. The student, in consultation with the Advisory Committee Chair, should make the necessary corrections and submit one (1) copy of the revised thesis to the department chair and dean of school or college for verification that the corrections have been made. The Thesis Committee chair will notify the dean of school or college after his final review and approval of the edited thesis. After reviewing the final (edited) thesis, the dean of school or college will notify the student and the Advisory Committee Chair that the thesis is ready to be printed. The student submit four (4) copies of the thesis (with original signatures of all Advisory Committee members on the title page), along with the ProQuest form and the required fee, to the office of the dean of school or college. The student must pay the thesis processing fee at the FSU’s Cashier’s Office and attach a receipt to the four (4) copies of the thesis.
