Congratulations on arriving at this pivotal moment in your progress towards your degree!
Before you can turn in your final draft, you need approvals from your committee and the Thesis Secretary. You also need to make sure it meets the correct formatting guidelines and is clean, proofread, and complete.
Start with the appropriate template in the Templates box below. Those templates contain the front matter for your thesis, such as the title page and committee page. Paste the template onto the beginning of your thesis, and then go to the Formatting subpage of this tab for the formatting requirements and some tips.
Remember: You must submit your dissertation on time, with correct formatting and approvals, before you can graduate and be included in the degree list. Check the due dates in the box below and on CST's Academic Calendar.
These templates are designed to help students with the formatting of the dissertation's or project thesis's front matter. Simply fill out the template and paste or begin typing the text of your dissertation on the pages that follow. To correctly format the Table of Contents, see the instructions here or search for instructions that cover your word processing program.
Unlike the Mentoring and SRCPSL DMin programs, the DMin in Practical Theology of Conflict, Healing and Transformation in Korean Contexts is primarily conducted in Korean. Thus, the final draft of the practical research project must be proofread by a Korean speaker, who will be assigned by the faculty. The final proofreading is based on the format set by the school, and the school introduces the proofreader to the student, but the DMin student is responsible for paying for proofreading services. The school will receive confirmation of final draft approval from the program director. For information about proofreading fees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The approval process is:
|PhD (All Programs)||April 1||Dissertation Final Draft Approval|
|DMin (All Programs)||April 1||Mentoring DMin or SRCPSL or Practical Theology|
