PhD title and diploma

Once you have successfully defended your thesis and made any required corrections to the manuscript, a few steps are still necessary before you receive your diploma. You need to pay the defense fee, follow all the specific steps required by your Faculty, and deliver the correct amount of copies to the library. Until those steps are taken, you are required to stay enrolled as a PhD candidate and pay the semester fees.
