This guide is under construction

This guide is based on the original Dissertation Calculator at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Each stage will be modified during late 2013 to correspond with the procedures and appropriate offices at the University of Central Florida. In the meantime, use the original calculator to determine projected dates for each stage, the narrative for each stage provided by the University of Minnesota, and the links on the pages of this guide to update Minnesota's links.

While awaiting completion of this version of the Dissertation Calculator, see Completing Your Thesis or Dissertation (ETD) at UCF for the current steps.
