During the last Dissertation course students should have a full committee draft meeting and complete all dissertation steps. Students should stay in touch with the Dissertation Office to make sure paperwork is up to date and accurately filed. After successful completion of the Dissertation courses, the Dissertation Office notifies the Registrar that the students have completed all dissertation requirements. Academic requirements are reviewed and approved by the Program Chairperson. Completed dissertations must be copy edited by a professional editor. Suggested editors are listed on the Dissertation Office section of the Student Resources on the Sofia website.
