Dissertations & DMin Projects: Step #7: Submission

A comprehensive, step-by-step guide to researching, writing, and digitally submitting PhD dissertations at Claremont School of Theology.

Final Submission Overview

NB: Students are not permitted to change their dissertations once they have been submitted. Please only submit your finalized version, i.e., the one approved by the Thesis Secretary.

Once you have Thesis Secretary approval and in order to complete all the requirements of your degree program, you will fill out two online forms:

1) SED (Survey of Earned Doctorates). Go to this website, register for a unique login, and then fill out the online SED Form. Please DO NOT fill out the pdf SED form or send it to us. When you complete the SED online form, the CST Thesis Secretary will automatically receive an email confirmation.

2) the Dissertation Submission Form below. At the end of the form, there will be a button to submit your dissertation in PDF format, as well as another button to submit any additional files (e.g., video or audio files) to accompany your dissertation. If you have any difficulties with uploading these files, please email the Thesis Secretary to make other arrangements (e.g., Dropbox or Google Drive upload and download).
