how do i get a masters degree after thesis submission or graduation date
Master’s thesis submission deadlines are the same as the deadlines for departmental submission of Degree Recommendation forms. See the SGS Calendar. It is possible that your department may set deadlines that are earlier than those set out in the Calendar, so we recommend that students check with their home units for deadlines.
Submission of your defended, corrected thesis represents completion of your degree requirements and is therefore the factor that determines how your final tuition fee charges are calculated and when you can graduate. See the Final Year fees tables for doctoral students on the Student Accounts website.

Thesis/Dissertation must be approved (signed) by committee, department/program chair, college dean and submitted to Graduate School by the POSTED date. Dates falling on Saturday or Sunday will be extended to the following Monday.
