The following fees are paid at the time the thesis is submitted as a pdf document. They are paid online directly to ProQuest. Upon submitting the thesis, you will be required to select “traditional” or “open access” publishing. Traditional publishing is required for submission and there is no fee. Selecting “open access” publishing is entirely optional and will result in a publishing fee, but will allow your thesis to be publicly available.
Please note that master’s students are limited to 655 words on the abstract which goes on the “about your submission” profile page. The abstract within the actual pdf document may still be 855 words, but you will need to prepare a shortened version to place on the profile page.
