The UCI Libraries provides formatting and submission support for graduate theses and dissertations. Theses and dissertations may be submitted electronically (via ProQuest), or on paper. Electronic submission best serves the majority of our graduate students and is highly encouraged.
If you have questions about formatting or the submission process, read through the FAQs or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions or concerns that do not relate to the formatting of your manuscript, please contact Graduate Division.
The filing deadline for a Summer 2022 degree is 5:00 pm on Wednesday, September 7, 2022.
The Formatting Manual
Please consult the UCI Thesis and Dissertation Formatting Manual when writing your manuscript. In addition to providing detailed information about proper formatting, the manual details the submission process and provides sample pages and templates.
Pre-submission critiques are available to all graduate students who would like the formatting of their manuscript looked at before final submission. How to request a critique depends on proximity to the filing deadline:
Now - August 31, 2022
(Plan around Labor Day!)
It may take up to 2 business days (M-F, excluding holidays) to receive a response to your question, critique, or ProQuest submission - especially during high-volume times in the quarter.
Please plan accordingly; we respond to questions as they come in and cannot rush or expedite any reviews.
