There are two databases/search engines you can use to find RSOE dissertations. All USC dissertations, including the latest ones, are in the USC Libraries Digital Library. You can also find most dissertations in Proquest Dissertations and Theses. A few years ago, the Graduate School made submitting to Proquest an optional step for all Schools. It is required to submit all dissertations to the Digital Library.

You’ll find instructions below on how to look for dissertations in the Digital Library and Proquest Dissertations.
