Are you planning to defend your dissertation soon? Uncertain about completing your requirements? You’ll need to get acquainted with our Dissertation Handbook and Abstract and Dissertation Format Guidelines.
If the formatting is difficult or you would like assistance creating a template, the Knowledge Navigation Center (KNC) on the 2nd floor of the Graduate Library can help! KNC provides one-on-one assistance free of charge. They accept walk-ins or take appointments for these services. They also provide workshops throughout the year on a variety of related topics.
We know you’re anxious to finish up! Be sure to schedule your pre-defense meeting at least three weeks prior to defending. At this meeting, you’ll learn about all of the final requirements to defend as well as deadlines and other important administrative information you need to know to achieve your final goal of receiving your Ph.D..
The staff in Rackham’s Office of Academic Records and Dissertations is always available to answer your questions as you progress through this process. You can e-mail us or call us at 763-0171.
