Summer Doctoral Candidates: Check your email regularly in case we need additional material from you. You should also check that messages from the ETD system are not filtered out as spam. Please remain in contact with our office. We may have questions, and we will be in touch.

Dissertation Office staff will audit the material on the ETD Administrator to ensure that your submission meets the specifications in the University-Wide Requirements for the Ph.D. Dissertation. We will let you know whether or not these specifications have been met in time for you to make revisions.

The Dissertation Office provides information on the University's dissertation policies. We help doctoral students understand dissertation formatting and publication requirements, and we assist with the submission process. We support graduate program administrators as they manage dissertation submissions and departmental approval, and we audit completed dissertation submissions to ensure they meet University requirements. We coordinate dissertation publishing and embargoes with ProQuest and with Knowledge@UChicago. Our office is Room 100B on the first floor of Regenstein Library.
