I turned in my thesis/dissertation last week, but the web still says, “lacks thesis.” Is something wrong?
Depending on when during the semester you submit your thesis or dissertation to the Graduate Education Office, DegreeWorks may show a status of "Lacks Thesis" for several weeks. Once your thesis or dissertation is received, both the Graduate Education Office and the Registrar must do some records processing before your status is updated. Acceptance by the Graduate Education Office, documented either by approval e-mail for your ETD or a copy of your signed Certificate of Thesis Approval, is your assurance that everything is all right.
Please visit the Theses and Dissertations page for more information.
