Thesis / Project

If you have finished all the coursework for your Master's program and are writing your thesis, please remember that you must maintain continuous enrollment. You may register for your department's 600 level course to maintain continuous enrollment. If you have any questions, please contact your department's Graduate Coordinator or call the Office of Graduate Studies at (310) 243-3693.

In the past year, the Graduate Studies and Research Submission and Review procedure has changed. CSUDH has transitioned to a completely digital, online review process. Below you can find a step by step guide for submitting your thesis/project to Graduate Studies and Research for final approval.  You may also download the Thesis and Project Formatting and Submission information guide as a reference.

Follow the steps below to submit your thesis

STEP 1: You must indicate your intent to submit your thesis or project by registering with the Office of Graduate Studies and Research. 
Click here to download the Intent to Submit Thesis/Project Form: [Word] and [PDF]

STEP 2: Only properly formatted theses/projects (see below for guidelines and templates) with approval of all committee members will be accepted for review. Plan ahead. Secure approval in advance of the deadline. 

STEP 3: Once the Office of Graduate Studies and Research has received your registration information and approval from your chair and committee, you will be notified by email that a personal review folio has been created for you in Blackboard. You will then need to upload your approved dissertation or thesis to that folio to commence review.  You must upload your thesis/project on or before  the stated deadline.
