I've defended my thesis, now what?

The website Dissertation & Thesis Preparation has a lot of great information. Be sure to look at the links on the left.

After your supervisor has approved any corrections to your final thesis, your supervisor and the Graduate Coordinator sign the "Departmental Recommendation for Convocation Clearance of Thesis Students" form. You then submit the unbound thesis and other forms to the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

For bound copies of your thesis, normally we suggest that you get 3 bound copies: one for the department, one for your supervisor, and one for yourself. The list of binderies is found on this page.

And don't forget to apply to convocate on-line! See here for deadlines and other information about convocation.
