Formatting Dissertations and Theses

These links provide the required documents and instructions for formating masters theses and PhD dissertations.  Instructional classes on using the formatting template are taught in the LRC on a quarterly basis.  Check the schedule for the next class.

The guidelines and requirements for theses and dissertations are located on the graduate program website.
