The Graduate School Advance to a Higher Degree

iThenticate Requests

Graduate School Requirement

Effective September 1, 2014, the Graduate School requires that all theses and dissertations be reviewed using the iThenticate software and any issues identified by the software addressed prior to deposit of the final thesis or dissertation with the Graduate School. Satisfaction of this requirement will be certified by the committee chair and degree candidate by certifying the following statement on the Electronic Thesis Acceptance Form [ETAF]:

"Further, I certify that to the best of my knowledge this document is the original work of the author and all content from other authors appearing in the thesis/dissertation has been properly quoted and attributed. The author's manuscript was diagnostically reviewed by iThenticate on the date indicated as determining factor in this assessment…"
