Thesis and dissertation formatting

Group formatting sessions

Please join us for our summer thesis/project/dissertation formatting session! During this session, 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. 

This session will be both in person, and on Zoom. Please RSVP using the form above to let us know how you will be attending! The zoom registration link can be found in the form as well.

Our summer workshop will take place on Wednesday, June 19th at 10am in Reichardt 122.

One-on-one thesis/project formatting sessions

One-on-one formatting sessions are strictly limited to one-half hour meeting over Zoom. 

Please note that these sessions are primarily intended for those who are planning on graduating in the current semester. As such, your dissertation/thesis/project should be in near final draft form. Prior to requesting a session, please refer back to the Graduate School's Dissertation/Thesis/Project Formatting Handbook (PDF) as it will answer many questions and help guide your formatting.

Please be advised, the Graduate School does not accept 1:1 formatting requests within two weeks of the thesis/dissertation submittal deadline. 

To schedule a session, please submit a request below. Once your appointment has been confirmed, you will receive a Zoom link via Google Calendar invite.
