If you are pursuing a master’s degree, please see the Thesis Filing Guide. Background Filing your doctoral dissertation at the Graduate Division is one of the final steps leading to the award of your graduate degree. Your manuscript is a scholarly presentation of the results of the research you conducted.
UC Berkeley upholds the tradition that you have an obligation to make your research available to other scholars. Your faculty committee supervises the intellectual content of your manuscript and your committee chair will guide you on the arrangement within the text and reference sections of your manuscript. Consult with your committee chair early in the preparation of your manuscript. The specifications in the following pages were developed in consultation with University Library. These standards assure uniformity in the degree candidates’ manuscripts to be archived in the University Library, and ensure as well the widest possible dissemination of student-authored knowledge.
Research Protocols If your research activities involve human or animal subjects, you must follow the guidelines and obtain an approved protocol before you begin your research. Eligibility Fall and Spring Semesters To be eligible to file for your degree, you must be registered or on approved Filing Fee status for the semester in which you file. We encourage you to file your dissertation as early in the semester as you can and to come in person to our office to submit your supporting documents. If you cannot come to our office, it is helpful if you have a friend bring your documents. Summer Filing Filing during the summer has a slightly different set of eligibility requirements.
If you were fully registered during the immediately preceding Spring semester, and have not used Filing Fee already, you may file your dissertation during the summer with no additional cost or application required. International students completing degree in the Summer should consult Berkeley International Office before finalizing plans, as in some cases lack of Summer enrollment could impact visa status or post-completion employment. If you have already used Filing Fee previously, or were not registered the preceding Spring semester, you will need to register in 3. 0 units in Summer Sessions in order to file. Dissertations filed during the summer will result in a summer degree conferral.
