Thesis Submission Process

This process is relevant to Daytona Beach master's degree students only.


Daytona Beach master's degree students are required to submit an electronic copy of each thesis to be housed in ERAU Scholarly Commons. In addition, an abstract of each thesis is uploaded into ProQuest’s Dissertation and Theses ETD system.

Ph.D. candidates should contact the appropriate academic college’s graduate office to obtain dissertation submission instructions.

Worldwide students are not required to submit their GRPs or theses to the Hunt Library.

Any paper copies produced by the student would be for personal use and not considered "official."
