Thesis and dissertation formatting

Group formatting sessions

Please join us for our next thesis/project/dissertation formatting session. During these sessions, we will review the submission process and timeline, as well as the common formatting errors.

This is a great place to ask questions and to gain a better understanding of the UAF formatting guidelines (PDF).  The students who participate in our formatting sessions usually have fewer errors to correct at the time of submission, which also reduces the amount of stress they experience in the final stages of finishing their degree. 

Sessions: Offered via Zoom and in-person.
