Advisor Center eDissertation/eThesis Approval

The online eDissertation/eThesis approval serves as the certificate of final reading of the dissertation/thesis submitted by the student. The certification process occurs in Axess, where the Final Reader will be able to review the final copy of the dissertation/thesis, and then approve or reject the submission. An email will automatically be sent to the student once the final reader has approved or rejected the dissertation/thesis.
