Thesis Submission Agreement

This agreement basically says: your work is yours, there aren't any copyright issues, and you're giving the library permission to include it in our collections and provide access to your thesis to researchers. If there are any restrictions you would like to place on access - for example, you don't want it included in the digital collection - this is the place to do it.

Personal Bound Copy

If you would like your own bound copy download the Thesis Binding- Payment Info, fill it out and submit a receipt from the accounting office with an extra copy. It will be sent out with all theses and can take several months until we get it back.
