Understandably, submitting a thesis or dissertation can be the most challenging and stressful part of completing one's degree requirements. Students should allow themselves ample time to defend their theses/dissertations and complete any necessary revisions before the submission deadline posted by the School of Liberal Arts. Theses/Dissertations have to be in a specific format. Formatting instructions can be found in the Guidelines for Preparing Theses and Dissertations. Theses/Dissertations are not accepted after the submission deadline.
An electronic copy (pdf) of thesis/dissertation with the committee signatures cover sheet must be submitted to ProQuest/UMI Dissertation Publishing AND to the Tulane Library Digital Repository for official publishing. Submission to both sites is REQUIRED.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation from the Tulane Digital Repository when your electronic submission is complete. Please include a hard copy of this email WITH the hard copy of your dissertation when it is submitted to the Graduate Programs Office.

(An abstract is not required for masters thesis). Make sure the left margin is 1 ½” and all others are 1”. This copy will become the copy of record in the Tulane library system.
