In order to graduate, students must submit their dissertation or thesis to ProQuest, a digital repository of scholarly works. Theses and dissertations will also appear in Niner Commons, UNC Charlotte’s own institutional repository. All theses and dissertations must be formatted according to the Graduate School's standards, and all milestones must be met in order to graduate.
Formatting workshops and general online information
Formatting and submission information can be found on this site. In addition, formatting workshops are scheduled throughout each semester. These workshops provide an overview of the thesis and dissertation submission process and the Graduate School's formatting and graduation requirements. Students are invited to bring their own documents and ask questions. Please visit the Center for Graduate Life and Learning events calendar to register.
A formatting and submission playlist can also be found on the Center for Graduate Life and Learning's YouTube channel.
ProQuest also provides instructions for how to submit your thesis or dissertation.
For thesis or dissertation formatting or submission questions, contact your college liaison. Information for connecting with your college liaison can be found in the block on this page.
The deadlines for all graduation milestones can be found on the Registrar's Calendar.
