Please read through below information and know exactly what you should do after your oral defense.
Step 1: Revise your thesis
During the oral defense, you all got feedback from your committee members. Please revise your thesis accordingly and submit it to your adviser for a final review. Once your adviser gives you a green light, you are ready to proceed.
Sign up at Turnitin webpage: http://turnitin.com/
Have your thesis checked for a final time.
*Please provide us your latest TURNITIN Originality Report (need to print out and ask your adviser to sign it).
*Check instructions on school library page. (English version is at the page bottom)
Step 2: Check thesis format and convert it into PDF
Your adviser will mainly focus on your thesis contents so it's a good idea for you to check the thesis format before converting it into a PDF file for deposit. Please go to GHRM MBA website http://ghrm.nsysu.edu.tw/bin/home.php?Lang=en
Download Thesis Cover Format / National Sun Yat-sen University Thesis/Dissertation Format Regulations
Step 3: Thesis deposit
Deposit your PDF thesis into the library system: http://etd.lib.nsysu.edu.tw/ETD-pdf/pdf/PdfUpload/#
(Good news is that the system has English version.)
While you are depositing your thesis, you would need to select whether you would like this thesis to be opened for reading and an authorization form (論文授權書) will be given by the system. Please print out 2 copies.
2~3 days after the deposit, the library will send you an email to confirm whether your thesis is OK or not. If not, the email will specify what exactly you need to adjust. Once confirmed by the library, your thesis is ready for print.
Step 4: Print out your thesis
After you make sure everything is correct, please convert your WORD file into PDF.
Go to any printing store around campus or in campus. (The e-mail of school print shop: firstname.lastname@example.org ) Please print out 3 copies with light yellow cover. The school print shop knows about the cover color. You just need to let them know you are from the College of Management, NSYSU.
Step 5: Graduation procedure
Print out the Graduation Procedure Form (check with your program coordinator) and start the graduation process:
- Getting adviser's signature or stamp on Graduation Procedure Form,
Latest TURNITIN Report, Declaration (文責自負聲明書) and
Authorization Form*2 (Please print it out from the library system) http://etd.lis.nsysu.edu.tw/ETD-pdf/pdf/PdfUpload/)
(2) Fill out questionnaires (2 for school and 1 for AACSB)

The account is the date of your birth and the first letter of your name.
for example: 19901206HA
Please go to GHRM office with one copy of your thesis and all the documents which signed by the adviser. Also, you would need to return anything you borrowed from the office.
(3) Go to the library with one copy of your thesis and get the stamp on Graduation Procedure Form.
(4) Go to the Academic Affairs Office with your Graduation Procedure Form and you student ID. You will then pick up your diploma.
A few notices:
(1) If you are an international student and plan to authenticate your diploma before leaving Taiwan, please remember to ask Christine (OIA) for more details.
(2) If you have taken any course this semester, you need to wait until your instructors have given the grades to school.
(3) If you decide to leave Taiwan before completing the leaving procedure it is YOUR responsibility to find somebody who can complete the process for you on campus. The leaving procedure cannot be completed off campus - you or your designated representative will need to be on campus to complete this process - after all graduation requirements are complete.
Hope this is helpful and please let me know if you have any other concern.
