Students completing their degree with a Dissertation or an MS Thesis must adhere to the deadlines below for final MS Thesis/Dissertation submission to the Graduate School of Engineering for the intended date of degree conferral. Northeastern University requires that students publish their Dissertation or Thesis with Proquest Dissertation Publishing. Whereas students previously completed this task by submitting a hard copy of the Dissertation or Thesis to Snell Library, you must now self-publish using the Northeastern University Proquest/ETD Administrator Site.
