Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) Submission Process

Beginning this fall, all NAU grad students will submit their thesis or dissertation online. A final copy of the finished document should be submitted online following defense.

There will be two more fall ETD workshops for faculty or for students who expect to graduate this semester: November 16 at 10:30 am or at 1:30 pm in Ashurst, Bldg. #11, Room A109. Spring workshops will be announced next semester.

See the ETD article in this newsletter for additional information and the Top 10 reasons to be happy about the new process!

Graduate Student-Only Commencement Ceremony and Reception

There will be a separate commencement ceremony on Friday, December 16, 2011 at 5 pm for all NAU master's and doctoral students, guests, faculty, and advisers in the J. Lawrence Walkup Skydome. Graduating students and their families are invited to a reception immediately following the ceremony in the duBois Center Ballroom and lasting until 7:45 pm.

Coming Soon! New Graduate Programs

Three new graduate degrees are in the approval process to begin fall 2012 at NAU.

Watch for information on the Graduate College website in the next few months.

Thank You to Grad Student Donors

The Graduate College is working to build its scholarship and travel funding so that we have more to offer you. When called by NAU student fundraisers last spring, 43 percent of the graduate students reached made a financial pledge to contribute to graduate student scholarships, travel funds, or to their own department. That is very impressive!

Thank you to all who gave in support of graduate student opportunities!

First Year as a Graduate Student?
