Instructions for Submitting Ph.D. Dissertations
1. Upload your final dissertation draft to ProQuest ETD here.
Follow the prompts in ProQuest to fill in keywords and subject tags, and to make important decisions like whether to embargo your work.
2. Submit your signed approval page to the STH Library.
The signed approval page should be a separate, single-page PDF of the signature page from your dissertation. It must be signed by both readers and can be submitted to me electronically this year as a PDF. This 1-page PDF will be kept on file in the library, and also uploaded to the administrative documents section of ProQuest. [Please note that the full dissertation file that you uploaded for ProQuest to publish, should remain unsigned to protect your readers’ signatures from online identity theft, per ProQuest’s and BU’s policies.]
3. Submit your dissertation fee: $115.
For the dissertation fee, you will need to mail a check or money order for $115 (made payable to “Boston University”) to: Boston University School of Theology Library, 745 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA, 02215. Unfortunately, there is currently no way for STH students to pay dissertation fees online.
