Thesis & Dissertation Format Guidelines

Submission deadline: The formatting check for the submission process may take up to several weeks to complete. Students should allot sufficient time to complete the library requirement before the add/drop deadline (two weeks into the new semester) or they will need to register for the new semester to maintain continuous enrollment.

The library maintains a list of completed dissertations & theses from our graduates. Some items may also be available in the institutional repository. 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 the template/sample documents in the appendix.
