Submit Your Thesis / Dissertation

Rensselaer’s Office of Graduate Education (OGE) and the Rensselaer Libraries offer a streamlined, electronic-only submission process for theses and dissertations for all graduate students.


Please review the OGE Preparation Manual and the MS or PhD checklists (below) as you prepare your submission. Carefully review the required forms that must be brought to OGE before you can upload your document for the final phase of the review/approval process.  

You are encouraged to make an appointment with the OGE office to conduct a preliminary review of your thesis/dissertation before final submission. Requests should be made before you defend and include the citation style used.
