Proposal Defense- Fall 2020


Dissertation Defense- Fall 2020


Deposit Deadline

ATTENTION: To ease the burden of obtaining and processing physical signatures for students, the library’s Dissertation Office has modified the procedure for verifying departmental approval of a student’s deposit.

As of March 13, 2020 and until further notice: in lieu of the signed approval page, the library will accept an email from the program executive officer confirming that the dissertation/thesis/capstone project has been approved and is ready to deposit. This single email, sent from a CUNY email address, will suffice for both signatures on the approval page; no library verification from the advisor is necessary at this time.

Please send emails to Roxanne Shirazi and cc:

ATTENTION: Students must apply for graduation in CUNYFirst by Sept 1st in order to complete the deposit for the Sept. 30, 2020 degree.
