The Author Login Form must be completed by all master's degree and doctoral candidates before they submit a thesis, project report, or dissertation to the Thesis and Dissertation Office. Information entered in the Author Login Form becomes part of the Author Information Management System (AIMS), an in-house database that is shared between the Thesis and Dissertation Office and Enrollment Services. Items like your name and the title of your manuscript will be transferred to your official transcript exactly as you type them, so please pay attention to accuracy in spelling and capitalization. Whenever you enter information into the Author Login Form you will receive an email confirming the information you have entered, offering you another opportunity to CHECK SPELLING AND CAPITALIZATION.
IMPORTANT: This is NOT an electronic submission of your manuscript. You MUST submit a print copy of your manuscript with all signatures complete on the signature page to the Thesis and Dissertation Office before 5 p.m. of the submission period deadline.
