Dissertation Office

Autumn doctoral candidates: Please review the University-Wide Requirements for the Ph.D. Dissertation. You may also wish to register for a session explaining Dissertation Procedures For Students.

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.
