Submitting Dissertations Electronically

Effective Oct. 2008, doctoral students who submit their dissertations electronically will no longer be required to submit a paper copy to the Graduate School, or pay the related $20 binding and shipping fees.

The GSSP staff is pleased to announce recent improvements to the Electronic Dissertation (ED) submission process, which has been an option for doctoral students since 2006. Effective October 2008, doctoral students who submit their dissertations electronically will no longer be required to submit a paper copy to the Graduate School, or pay the related $20 binding and shipping fees. Additional conveniences include on-line payment of the required publishing fee, and the opportunity to make their dissertations available via the University’s Digital Conservancy http://conservancy.umn.edu/dissertations/

To publicize the above changes, we recently sent an email notification to all currently registered doctoral students. In addition, we soon will be sending hard-copy notices concerning the latest ED submission improvements to your graduate program office and ask that you post these notices near/within your office to help us publicize the ED submission process. In that mailing you will also receive for your reference a revised version of the Graduate School’s “Preparing the Doctoral Dissertation?, which includes information about formatting, submitting, and publishing the dissertation. An electronic version of this document is available at http://www.grad.umn.edu/current_students/forms/gs16.pdf

Thank you for your help with sharing the information about the ED submission process. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the GSSP office at gsdoc@umn.edu.
