New graduate degree completion procedures in effect for Spring 2018.

Graduate students at MSU Moorhead are no longer required to submit printed copies to the Library to be bound.* All submissions will now be electronic.

A copy of each dissertation and thesis written by a graduate student at MSUM as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the graduate degree is deposited in RED. For those graduate students that elect to do a Project/Action Research (Plan B), a copy of the Abstract will be uploaded in RED.

RED is an open-access repository maintained by the Minnesota State University Moorhead Library to showcase, preserve, and provide access to the scholarly and creative work produced by the MSUM community. For more information, visit the webpage at

Graduate students who prepared a thesis (registered in 699) will upload their final approved thesis to RED.

Graduate students who prepared a Project or Action Research (registered in 696 or 796) will upload a copy of their abstract only to RED.

Full instructions are attached.
