Preparing a thesis?

2. Format and print your thesis manuscript as described in the Thesis Manual. If you need writing support, take advantage of the services provided by the Graduate Learning Specialists. One-on-one appointments are available.
3. Have your title/signature page complete with all signatures (per Thesis Manual instructions).
4. Submit thesis manuscript and one copy of your title/signature page to the Office of Graduate Studies by the deadline date.
5. After your submission, the University Thesis/Dissertation Reader will contact you.


The University Thesis/Dissertation Reader, Debra Stewart,, is available to answer any questions not found on this site by email or by appointment only. During peak times, when there is a high volume of theses and dissertations to review, it may take up to three business days for you to receive a response. Thesis writing workshops are offered every semester and highly recommended for anyone writing a thesis. The workshop powerpoint presentation is available for viewing on this site.
