Thesis Completion

In July 2011, the University of Guelph moved to an electronic thesis format (known as ETD) and submission process.

All students in thesis-based programs must submit their thesis electronically to the University of Guelph's institutional repository (the Atrium) in order to graduate.

Once your thesis is approved in the Atrium, your thesis and program information will be made available on the World Wide Web and deposited in the Library and Archives Canada
