This institution we will be utilizing ProQuest for Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) submissions.

Two new major changes in format for Thesis and Dissertation Final Documents are:

  1. 1” margins (top-bottom-left-right) and
  2. All page numbers should be placed on the bottom center of each page with a half inch margin.

Steps to submit final Thesis/Dissertation to ProQuest

Step 1: After completing the theses/dissertations final requirement steps, students will go to the following URL to register and create a personal account and follow the instructions to submit the full document.  Students can upload from any computer with internet access.

**If you have questions regarding publishing options, embargo questions..etc., please call the ProQuest Publishing Department at 1-800-521-0600 ext. 77020

Step 2: Final Approval….the College of Graduate Studies will review the uploaded document and submit to ProQuest. Student will receive an email notification when document is approved.


  1. A Diploma/Transcript Hold will be placed on the student's record until electronic submission is approved.
