Information about access when you submit a thesis or dissertation at Washington University in St. Louis

Dissertation Submissions

Doctoral candidates on the Danforth campus submit their dissertations through their individual schools to ProQuest through an online form. If a guide is not listed below, contact your school's registrar for more information.

After files for a given degree award period have been submitted to ProQuest and posted to their database, those files are then forwarded to Washington University Libraries, and library staff ingest the files into its institutional repository Open Scholarship. This usually occurs 2-3 months after commencement.
