Thesis Submission Instructions

Current Honors Students

To submit their honors project to the Library, graduating honors students should:

  1. Ensure that the honors program coordinator has at least one paper copy of your thesis, unbound and preferably unstapled, signed by your thesis advisor and readers.
  2. Submit a digital copy of your thesis to the Library. Small files can be emailed to etheses@scranton.edu, while larger files can be submitted by dropping off a clearly labeled CD, DVD, or thumb drive at the Library Circulation Desk. Acceptable file extensions include .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf.
  3. Sign a copy of the Library's Electronic Theses Approval form and drop it off at the Library Circulation Desk.

Any questions on thesis submission may be directed to etheses@scranton.edu.

Current Graduate Students

The Library and the University of Scranton's Graduate and Continuing Education Services (GCES) office currently require the submission of both print and electronic versions of each masters thesis. The Weinberg Memorial Library will preserve both versions: print theses will be stored in the University Archives, while electronic theses will be included in the Library's Digital Collections.

After the student's department has read and approved the thesis, students should submit to the Library the following materials:

  1. Two GCES thesis approval forms, each signed by your research mentor and advisory committee.
  2. One printed copy of the completed thesis. Please do not bind or staple.
  3. One digital copy of the completed thesis. Files under 20MB may be submitted via email to etheses@scranton.edu. Larger files may be submitted on CD, DVD, or thumb drive. Acceptable file extensions include .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf. If you require the use of an alternative file format or submission method, please contact us at etheses@scranton.edu .
  4. One Electronic Theses Approval Form, filled out and signed by the student.

The forms and paper thesis should be placed in a large envelope labeled with the student’s name. Students can submit materials by:

a. Dropping them off in person at the Weinberg Memorial Library Circulation Desk; or
b. Mailing all materials to:
     Weinberg Memorial Library (Attn: Digital Services Department)
     The University of Scranton
     Scranton, PA 18510

Once all materials have been received, the Library will forward one copy of the student's signed thesis approval form to Graduate and Continuing Education Services as confirmation of successful thesis submission. The Library will also send the student confirmation of receipt via email.
