Upcoming Ph.D. Dissertation Defense Announcements

One of the last steps to obtaining your doctoral degree is to defend your dissertation. Once you have finalized your dissertation, you must schedule and announce your defense.

Schedule Your Defense

First, arrange a mutually agreeable time with your committee. Set up the oral exam at least 30 days prior to when you wish to defend. Provide all members of your committee with a complete copy of your dissertation at least 30 days before the defense so they will have sufficient time to read and criticize your work.

Learn more about deadlines »


Announce Your Defense

Once the date of your defense has been established, you should complete the Ph.D. Defense Announcement Submission through OneStart. The announcement e-doc must reach the University Graduate School at least 30 days before the date of your defense. The University Graduate School begins counting the 30 days from the date your e-doc is received by our office. We recommend that you submit the e-doc at least 40 days before your defense date to allow time for the e-doc to route for approval through your academic department.

Submit your announcement through OneStart »

Once announced, the time and place cannot be changed without the approval of the dean of the University Graduate School.

Ordinarily, the defense is conducted here at Indiana University, but under extraordinary circumstances other arrangements can sometimes be made. Prior approval must be obtained from your committee and the University Graduate School.

After submitting your Ph.D. Defense Announcement Submission e-doc, track your document to ensure timely approval. Click on the “Student Reference” link in the “Ph.D. Defense Announcement" section and scroll to the section pertaining to tracking your e-doc.
