Dissertation Office

Autumn Quarter Doctoral Candidates:

You will be submitting your dissertation online using the ProQuest ETD Administrator, a web-based submission system. Sign up for an ETD account, activate the ETD account, complete your contact information (under Publishing information), and explore the ETD Administrator site.

Register for a workshop covering dissertation submission procedures. The workshop is optional, but registration is required if you wish to attend.

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 309 on the third floor of Regenstein Library.
