Dissertation and Thesis Manual

The Dissertation and Thesis Manual (revised February 2013) provides definitive information on preparing your dissertation or thesis. Please be aware that the revised manual is longer and more detailed than the previous version but improved navigation aids should allow you to navigate quickly to the topic of interest. You are encouraged to download a copy of the manual for personal use; however, it should not be necessary to make a hard copy of the entire manual. We suggest you review the electronic version first, then print only the sections you need.

You are also encouraged to visit our Writing Resources webpage, a one-stop shop where you can find help with writing, copyright issues, plagiarism, style guides, and much more!
