  2. At the time of their defense, students obtain signatures from their Committee Chair for the Thesis/Dissertation Transmittal  Memo to confirm that their work has been checked for plagiarism.

  3. Submit signed Thesis/Dissertation Transmittal Memo to Graduate College along with signed signature page(s) and completed draft of thesis/dissertation according to the Graduate College Submission Deadlines.
