Daytona Beach master's degree students are required to submit a full-text electronic copy of each thesis to be housed in ERAU Scholarly Commons. In addition, ERAU recommends graduate students also submit their thesis for inclusion in ProQuest Electronic Theses and Dissertations Database.
You must provide a correctly formatted PDF copy. To do this, use a word processing program to save your file appropriately.
