Book HERE for a Thesis formatting / submission appointment

We typically offer two types of thesis formatting and submission appointments:

  • Pre-submission review 
    • When: Appointments occur before a thesis is submitted to the library; can be pre- or post- defense or anytime during the writing process to ensure your formatting is on track
    • What happens during the appointment? Overall formatting reviews, troubleshooting, figures/tables, etc.
  • Thesis intake
    • When: Appointments occur after you have defended & completed any revisions, and all documentation has been uploaded to the Thesis Registration System
    • What happens during the appointment? We will work with you to complete the intake stage. We inform you of any revisions required to your submission. 
    • Note: Intake appointments decrease the time required to process your thesis after submission.
