  • Format your thesis/dissertation into one PDF file.
    • ​Be sure the final version of your thesis/dissertation includes a page with the signatures of your committee.
      This should be placed directly after the title page.
    • IMPORTANT: Students must obtain written permission from the rights holders to reproduce any previously copyrighted illustrations, figures, tables, data, or tests/scales. Citing the source does not take the place of obtaining permission from the rights holders.
