Submitting your dissertation
Please email email@example.com to arrange submission of your dissertation. Please plan to drop off two copies, plus any additional personal copies, and a PDF copy of your dissertation. (If you haven't made a PDF before, see How To Create a PDF File.)
Fasten a copy of the Dissertation Order Form above to the outside of the envelope. Make sure that all copies are collated and ready to bind. Documents that are not properly packaged will not be accepted at the time of submission. A copy of the Order Form will be emailed to your Dissertation/Thesis Advisor.
Please include the PDF on a thumb/flash drive, or email the PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. The PDF copy of your Dissertation/Thesis will be loaded into the Summit Institutional Repository@PSU. The full text of your dissertation will be available to everyone within the PSU community. Consider granting permission to publish your thesis with open access permissions, granting the ability to read the full text to everyone worldwide.
For personal bound copies, provide a check or money order payable to PSU ($20 per copy). There is no fee for onsite pick-up (please contact us to make arrangements), however an additional $15 flat rate shipping charge is required for shipment to your home address. We can accept credit or debit cards; please contact us to arrange for credit card payment. Plymouth State University will cover the cost of two bound copies: one for the Writing Center and the other for Spinelli Archives.
Please note: Bound copies may take up to 6 months to process.
