Thesis & Dissertation Format Guidelines

Submission deadline: Doctoral and master's students should complete the library requirement of their dissertation or thesis before the add/drop deadline (two weeks into the new semester) or they will need to register to maintain continuous enrollment.

The library maintains a list of completed dissertations & theses from our graduates. Students should note that citation styles and organizational practices may have changed and thus should avoid using past work as a template. Follow the guidelines and template documents in the appendix.
