Dissertation Office

If you are writing a dissertation and you plan to include images, you may want to register for a workshop on using images in your work.

Fourth Week: If you plan to submit your dissertation this quarter, please be sure you have provided contact information in your ETD account. The Institutional Student ID is your 8-digit University of Chicago Student ID. Let us know if you have any questions about copyright, formatting, the submission process or your publication decisions.

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.
