What should I expect after submission?

The Library Archives will send a verification e-mail stating your submission has been received and is under review. This e-mail confirms the initial submission has been received, it is not the final approval. A response regarding the outcome of your review (approved or revise and resubmit) will take up to approximately two business days.

If your submission requires any changes you will receive an email explaining the changes that need to be made and you will need to resubmit your thesis or dissertation through the same link above. A response regarding the outcome of your review (approved or revise and resubmit) may take an additional two business days to receive.
