Library requirements for graduate students

As stated in the University Catalog, graduate students who complete a thesis are required to submit both an electronic and print copy to the University Library for archiving prior to graduation. This is in addition to any requirements of the student's specific department or program

The student is responsible for all reproduction and binding costs. The library processes university and personal copies of each thesis as part of regular binding shipments, so students receive the library’s volume discount price. The current binding cost per copy is $9.25

Submission procedures

  • Confirm with your advisor that your thesis meets all formatting and style guidelines and includes correct front matter (e.g., certificate of acceptance).
  • Check your department/program guidelines to see how many bound copies you must provide. 
  • Review your thesis carefully for errors. They are bound as received.
  • Have your thesis printed (one copy for the library, plus copies for the department/program and personal use). Printing specs are covered in the University Catalog.
  • Save your thesis as a PDF or PDF/A file and store it on a USB or CD.

  • Take the completed thesis submission form, unbound copies of the thesis, PDF file, and a check for all copies made out to Houchen Bindery ($9.25/copy) to Felicia Martinez-Goodwin in Library Technical Services (LARC 236A).  

After all materials are received, your advisor will be notified that you have met the thesis submission portion of graduation requirements. The electronic thesis will be placed in the CSU-Pueblo Digital Repository. The Library's print copy will be stored in the University Archives. 

Note on thesis binding: processing time is up to two months, depending on shipping dates and the date of submission. The library is not responsible for copies lost or damaged by the binder or in transit. When the bound volumes are returned to the library, the student and advisor(s) will be notified within 48 hours with pickup information.
