The deadlines for submitting a thesis, project or dissertation for review are listed below. Please do your best to format your manuscript before submitting it to CSUSB ScholarWorks. This will speed up the process and help to ensure that your manuscript is accepted for publication by the publication deadline. Poorly formatted manuscripts that need multiple reviews may not be accepted by the publication deadline.

Submission Deadline: Turn in the Committee Certification Form at Graduate Studies, upload your manuscript on Scholarworks, and pay the Digital Archive and Review fee by this date. Students who do not meet the deadline must submit the following term. We encourage you to submit before the deadline! Please see the Manuscript Review Process for more information.

Publication Deadline: Complete all corrections for publication by this date. Do not wait until the publication deadline to submit your corrections - most manuscripts take 2 reviews. Allow several days for each review.


Spring 2020 Deadlines

  • Students wishing to complete their degrees by the end of spring quarter may complete consultations by May 8th, must submit for first format review by May 15th, and final publication by June 5th.
  • Those who need more time to complete and format their thesis can opt to complete in summer while still posting a spring 2020 graduation date. These students may schedule a  consultation from June 8th to June 22nd, must submit for first format review by June 29th, and final publication by August 10th.
  • You must enroll for Spring 2020. If you submit your thesis by June 29th, you do not need to enroll in summer. 

Documents submitted on or before May 15th will be reviewed first. Documents submitted after May 15th will be reviewed after all those who met the May 15th deadline are completed. Once documents are submitted, the ScholarWorks account is locked until the document is reviewed; do not submit work that is incomplete.
