ATTENTION: Electronic submission of manuscripts is REQUIRED beginning with Fall 2014. Not all webpages have been completely updated and may have contradictory information. Please contact the Thesis and Dissertation Office if you have any questions or concerns about the submission process


The Library-sponsored Research & Writing Workshops calendar provides the most up-to-date listings for workshops  on citation software and graduate workshops. 

Department or college specific seminars can be set up by departmental graduate advisors or committee chairs in cooperation with the Thesis and Dissertation Office. Format seminars for manuscript preparation can be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Check with your departmental graduate advisor or committee chair for date, time, and location. If no seminar has been scheduled, or if a time conflict occurs, please contact the Thesis and Dissertation Office for assistance or questions concerning the preparation of your thesis, project report or dissertation.


Interested in a drop-in workshop with one-to-one help with formatting and creating a PDF? Call or email the Thesis Office to let us know. If there's enough interest, we'll schedule some.
