Students are required to submit their final project to their academic Department and to sign the release form allowing the library to archive it. The Department reserves the right to withhold student grades until students submit their thesis materials.
Submission Procedures and Deadlines
Please refer to the most current Loeb Library Standards for Thesis Submission for full and accurate procedures, file specifications and naming conventions. We strongly encourage students to include photographs of their models in their file.
Students must compile relevant thesis review materials and texts into a single PDF-A document (archived PDF) and submit it to your departmental office. Students who have significant video elements as part of their thesis may provide their materials on a USB drive to the LA/UPD Office (Gund 312).
To authorize the GSD to archive your thesis, each student must also include the signed Thesis Permission Cover Letter as the first page in their submission.
All final PDF theses must be submitted to the Thesis Director for grading and Program Coordinator for archiving by no later than by 9:00 AM on May 20th.
