Thesis & Dissertation Manual

The Guide to the Preparation of Theses and Dissertations is available online. The manual contains detailed instructions, and provides full size sample pages. We recommend that you read the entire text, and printout at least the relevant sample pages prior to preparing your document, since headings, subheadings, and spacing can appear differently when viewed on the computer screen than in printed format. The document was updated for the fall 2018 semester.
