As of Spring 2016, all students submitting a thesis or dissertation must do so through the Vireo Submission Process. No paper copies of theses or dissertations will be accepted. No electronic theses or dissertations (ETD) submitted through any other service, including ProQuest, will be accepted either. The last day to submit a thesis or dissertation should be 10 business days prior to the last day of final exams. The dates for the last day of accepted ETD submissions for upcoming semesters is posted on the Home Page for ETDs linked on the left. The document below is a step by step guide for submitting a thesis or dissertation using the Vireo system. Students are strongly encouraged to read through these web pages and guides before submitting their thesis or dissertation. The link that follows will navigate to ECU’s Vireo Submission System.
