Dissertation Office

The Dissertation Office will be closed September 16-20.

Autumn doctoral candidates: If your dissertation uses previously copyrighted material beyond fair use, you must obtain permission from the copyright holder to include the material. It's a good idea to take care of this issue prior to the quarter you plan to graduate because you need this permission before you submit the final version of your dissertation.

The Dissertation Office provides information on the University's dissertation policies. We help 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.
