Graduate students are required to submit two copies of their thesis to the Graduate School for submission to the Valley Library for binding and archiving and (for doctoral dissertations) for transmittal to Bell and Howell University Microfilm, Inc. 

Graduate students may wish to make additional copies of their thesis for their own use, and the department or major professor may require a copy.  All copies of the document are the financial responsibility of the student, unless it is standard written policy that the department retains copies.  In that case, binding of up to 3 copies is allowed with general funds.  This cost is not allowed on research grants unless the thesis serves as the final technical report, and the student releases the thesis for this purpose.
