Submitting the Final Copy of Your Thesis

Once your examination is successful it is time for you to update your original work and resubmit the revised thesis to Scholarship@Western.  

If you choose not to submit your work through the ETD repository you must make an appointment to meet with the Thesis and Membership Coordinator to submit your final paper copies.  You can make an appointment with the Thesis and Membership Coordinator via the Final Thesis Submission Scheduler.

In addition, you are required to submit the following to the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies before publication can occur:

Doctoral Thesis

Reviewing Your Final Submission

The Thesis and Membership Coordinator will audit your final submission to ensure it meets all regulations pertaining to thesis formatting. Once approved the work will immediately be published within the repository and you will be informed of the publication via email. Confirmations will also be sent to your supervisor and program administrator. Once the thesis is published, you have officially completed the thesis requirement of your degree. Subject to approval by the University Senate, your name is placed on the convocation list. Should you require proof of completion of all degree requirements you should contact the Thesis Coordinator in SGPS.
