1. Make sure you have an abstract, 3-4 keywords, your faculty advisors' proper names, any supplemental files, and your thesis. Make sure you have the clean copy in PDF.
2. You should have done a Fair Use analysis or have permission to use any graphs, tables, images, or other content that is not your own (see the box above).
3. Choose to keep access as Campus Only (default) or allow Open Access.
NB: If you choose Campus Only, you will not be able to access your Thesis once you have graduated.
4. Choose a Creative Commons license.
5. If necessary, choose an embargo, or an exemption and have the form signed by your advisor.
6. Upload, then celebrate! Congratulations!
Please note that once a thesis has been submitted, it will not be removed unless there are charges of plagiarism or copyright violation. You can always change access from Claremont Campus Only to Open Access, but once you cannot restrict access once it is open.
