Submission Fees

The following fees will be posted to your bursar account once the submission process is complete. All fees are payable at the cashier’s desk at the Bursar’s Office, 260 Day Hall, or online via NetPay. If you do not pay owed fees, a hold will be placed on your bursar account, and neither your transcript nor diploma will be released until all accounts are current.

  • Dissertation Filing Fee: The dissertation filing fee ($135) for doctoral candidates covers costs of submitting a master copy of the entire dissertation to ProQuest, publishing the abstract in the monthly periodical Dissertation Abstracts International, and printing and binding of the archival copy for Cornell University Library.
  • Thesis Filing Fee: The thesis filing fee ($50) for master’s candidates covers the cost of printing and binding the archival copy for Cornell University Library.
  • Late Filing Fee: Students are allowed 60 days after the final examination to submit approved copies of the dissertation or thesis to the Graduate School. A late-filing fee ($100) will be charged if this requirement is not met.
