Filing for your degree and thesis information:

Spring of your third year: You must complete the on-line application for your masters degree. You can apply for your degree starting the first week of the quarter. They will ask if you're in a thesis program, and you are. For your thesis title, use:

  • "TITLE - a solo performance of my own design"

You have until the last day of classes of the quarter to complete the on line application for your degree, but it will only take you a couple of minutes so file early and get it done. No charge. Trying to file for your degree after the last day of classes will mean at least a $250 charge, plus delays.

You also submit a written thesis on line: information on the thesis document

The graduate school has formatting guidelines on their web site, with info on required sections of the thesis document. The link to submit your thesis via ProQuest is also on the Grad School's web site.

ProQuest thesis submittal page.

Commencement registration starts in early May, and their web site has information on signing up to walk in the ceremony, reserving tickets for guests, etc. Commencement is entirely different from filing for your degree, signing up to go through Commencement will not work unless you have filed for your degree as above.

Satisfactory Progress

Graduate students must maintain satisfactory progress to stay in the program. Please read Academic Policy Memo 11 for complete guidelines.
