New Thesis Templates Available
The new thesis templates are live on the Thesis Templates Page: http://www.purdue.edu/gradschool/research/thesis/templates.html
As templates are updates, the newest versions will be uploaded to that webpage, so please check the thesis template page to be sure you are using the most recent version.
Update to Thesis Deposit Procedures
The Thesis/Dissertation office has updated the new Electronic Thesis Acceptance Form so that students will now receive e-mail notifications confirming their successful thesis deposits in lieu of the traditional GS Form 16 (Thesis Deposit Receipt).
In addition to confirming successful deposits, the e-mails will also contain useful information for students relating to a) timely payment of their thesis deposit fees, b) accessing myPurdue to view their approved electronic thesis acceptance forms, and c) how to complete our Thesis Process Survey to provide feedback that will help us improve our student services.
They will continue to accept hard copy thesis forms (e.g., GS Form 9, 32, etc.) until the end of this term (Fall 2016). Students who submit hard copy forms during deposits will continue to receive the traditional GS Form 16 (Thesis Deposit Receipt) via e-mail PDF attachment along with a “cc” to their respective graduate contacts.
Questions? Please feel to contact the Thesis/Dissertation Office for assistance.
