Items and steps required in order to graduate
Now that you have passed your defense, you will want to complete the following steps. Please remember to refer to the "deadlines" tab to keep in mind the graduation deadlines as they become critical at this step in the graduation process.
Most students have some form of both format revisions required by the Graduate College and revisions required by the committee/chair. You will want to begin working on these soon after your defense. Keep in contact with the Format Advisors at email@example.com and keep your email inbox clear for communication from them.
Please follow the steps outlined below in regards to your Pass/Fail form:
You must have completed the following before you can upload to ProQuest:
Please remember to refer to the "deadlines" tab to keep in mind the graduation deadlines for submitting Pass/Fail forms and uploading to ProQuest.
At the time of your defense, your committee should determine if public release of your document will be delayed for a maximum of two years to protect any of the following reasons:
The Delaying Publication of Your Theses/Dissertation (Embargo Status form) must be submitted along with your completed Pass/Fail form to the Graduate College in order for your Thesis or Dissertation to be embargoed.
Once the 2-year ASU embargo expires, full documents are available through the ASU Digital Repository. If you would like to extend your embargo through ASU for 2 additional years, please contact the Graduate College by email firstname.lastname@example.org. *Please note: The maximum allowed time to embargo your document is 4 years. As a product of Arizona State University, all ASU Theses/Dissertations will be released through the ASU Digital Repository once the embargo time limit has expired.
IMPORTANT: Embargoing through ProQuest is separate from embargoing through ASU. If you would like to secure an indefinite embargo from ProQuest on your theses/dissertation then you must have successfully completed all requirements and graduated. You may then submit a request directly to ProQuest, either by email (email@example.com) or by telephone (800-521-0600, ext. 77020).
Submission Instructions: Please scan and electronically send the form (only chair/co-chair or academic unit support staff) to firstname.lastname@example.org OR the student may hand-deliver the signed form to the Graduate College, Interdisciplinary B-Room 288 (Tempe Campus). Please ensure the graduate support staff receives a copy for departmental records.
