We're open in person and online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff. Here's what you need to know to have a safe and successful visit. We continue to provide support online for GVSU students, faculty, and staff through our online services.

Due to the Staying in Place order, the University Libraries is open for individual study only. No gatherings or group activities are allowed. Strict adherence to preventive measures is required, including the wearing of face coverings in the library at all times.

All master’s theses and doctoral dissertations are included in GVSU’s ScholarWorks@GVSU Institutional Repository. Completed theses and dissertations that have been approved by your department and The Graduate School should be submitted electronically to ScholarWorks@gvsu.edu. Submissions must include your complete thesis, along with a copy of the signed Thesis Approval Form and a signed Thesis Submission Agreement for ScholarWorks. These documents may be found on The Graduate School website

If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact our scholarly communications team at (616) 331-9143 or scholarworks@gvsu.edu.


Graduate Projects

Once your project is complete, bind your project according to your department standards. If required by your department, deliver one bound copy to the library. The library will issue a receipt that you may present to your department’s graduate office to verify compliance and completion of the requirement.
