Undergraduate students Graduating with Distinction (GwD) have an option to submit their completed theses to DukeSpace. Approval from program administrators and advisor is required. Not all departments participate or allow their GwD students to submit theses. Interested students should view their program’s requirements and speak with their advisor for more information.

It is recommended that students who intend to deposit do so prior to graduation; however, once permission is granted, they retain the right to deposit as long as their NetID is active, which is one year post-graduation.
