Once you’ve finalized your thesis, your instructions for submission vary depending on whether your degree is conferred through IU or Purdue.

IU Thesis Submission
Pay careful attention to the deadlines for each of these steps.
Complete the steps below to submit your thesis.
Once your thesis is complete, you must have it approved by at least three members of the faculty, usually the professors who have directed your research and writing.
Have the approving faculty members sign your acceptance page, which is a required section of your thesis.
Once you are ready to begin the submission process, email the IU Graduate School recorder in the Graduate Office at IUPUI to schedule a format check. The scheduling of this appointment is mostly determined by the post-defense revisions required by your committee, but should take place well in advance of your expected graduation date to avoid delay. Submit the following for the format check:
- Committee approved thesis
- Copy of the signed acceptance page
Once the format is approved, upload the approved document to IUPUI ScholarWorks.IUPUI ScholarWorks
If you choose to order a bound copy that will accept dissertation and thesis orders, a list of binderies can be found in the attached document "Dissertation and Thesis Bound Copies: Bindery Information." This is in no way an endorsement of services by Indiana University, it is simply a courtesy to our graduate students.
Students must work with the individual binderies to obtain pricing and the document transfer logistics required for each.
If the bindery does not have its own print press, ask for print shop recommendations.
