These pages provide all the resources you need to prepare and submit your thesis or dissertation according to Graduate School requirements. Should you need further assistance, you may contact the Thesis Office by email, phone or in person. Here are some of the ways we can help you:

  • Fully explain and demonstrate all document format requirements and technical specifications in the context of your unique document
  • Review your documentation style and citation format
  • Describe the electronic submission process step by step
  • Point you to sources of additional help when needed

We also offer a number of informational presentations and hands-on workshops throughout the year on almost every aspect of the thesis/dissertation experience. You'll find a calendar of these events under Workshops and Support.
