    • Can have multiple appointments throughout the writing process to ensure your formatting is on track
    • Overall formatting reviews, troubleshooting, figures/tables, etc.
  • Thesis intake
    • After you have defended & completed any revisions, and all documentation has been uploaded to the Thesis Registration System
