Preparing For Upload

Senior Thesis

Preparing Your Thesis for Upload

  • Turn off Track Changes. Your thesis upload submission will be rejected if Track Changes is enabled!
  • Make sure pagination and running headers are consistent and appropriate through all pieces of your document.
  • Locate all the files that comprise the final version of your thesis (not a draft!) The document you upload should be the same version as the bound copy you submit to the Registrar’s Office. Make sure all of the following are included:
    • Title Page
    • Abstract (required for upload)
    • Table of Contents
    • Acknowledgements (optional)
    • All chapters, with text, photos, charts, graphs, etc.
    • Works Cited/Bibliography
    • Appendices (if applicable)
  • Combine all files into a single PDF.
  • Perform a Fair Use Analysis if you have not done so already.
  • Come up with a list of 3-6 keywords (topic or subject terms) for your thesis.
  • Decide the level of access (campus only or open access) you would like for your uploaded thesis.
