Dissertation Office

Autumn 2021 PhD Candidates: You will be submitting your dissertation online using the ProQuest ETD Administrator, a web-based submission system. By this point in the quarter, you should have created an ETD account and provided your contact information. Contact information is the last step in the Publishing information section.

Ask the Dissertation Office or Schedule a Meeting if you have questions or would like assistance.

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.
