If you wish to delay publication of your thesis or dissertation in the UMI/ProQuest system and eScholarship with an embargo, you must complete the embargo section of the Ph.D. Form II/Signature page or the Master’s Thesis signature page. If you are requesting an embargo for more than 6 years, you must attach a brief memo of explanation addressed to the Graduate Dean for approval. Options for the period of time an embargo may be granted are: 6 months, 1-6 years and by exception only, more than 6 years. Currently, there is not an option to renew an embargo. It is important that you and your committee realize that you must actively make a selection regarding whether to request an embargo or not. There are no defaults either way, this is an option you must select. See also the embargo section of ProQuest Dissertations FAQ.
