Thesis and Dissertation Templates

 The following components must be formatted to be uniform with the model / template:

Title Page, Committee Page, Acknowledgements, Abstract, Table of Contents, List of Tables, List of Figures, Chapters, Top Margins, Pagination (Roman and Arabic Numerals), References, Appendices, and Vita.  

Students should format their thesis or dissertation to follow the guidelines contained within the model document.   Use of the “template” is an option for students who find it helpful.   All theses and dissertations, regardless of their source document (MS Word, LaTeX, Mac Pages, Google Docs or another Open Source document) must match the uniform guidelines contained within the model documents.


Printed Abstracts are no longer required for submission.
