For the dissertation, you also will need to submit two copies of the approval page signed by your committee and Chairperson (or Director for CPIP or BMS)and one dissertation preparation approval form to the A&S Office of Graduate Affairs before your electronic submission will be accepted. For the thesis, you also will need to submit two copies of the approval page signed by your advisor and Chairperson (or Director for CPIP or BMS)and one thesis preparation approval form to the A&S Office of Graduate Affairs before your electronic submission will be accepted.




  1. The abstract is a separate part of the electronic submission and should not be included in the body of the pdf file. For the few departments that require an abstract as a part of the manuscript, a section serving this purpose should be labeled Summary and serve as the first chapter of the body of the dissertation or thesis. Therefore, margins, spacing and pagination for the Summary should follow the rule of the body of the text.




  1. The dissertation fee for University Microfilms, Inc is covered by Kent State University. However, if you wish to copyright your dissertation you will need to pay that fee separately.

STYLE GUIDE AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR TYPING THESES AND DISSERTATIONS


This is the official style guide for theses and dissertations in the College of Arts and Sciences. It was approved and adopted by the Arts and Sciences Graduate Council on April 24, 1996. Special style guides are used by various departments for footnote forms and other matters of detail. These should be consulted for matters not covered in the College of Arts and Sciences Style Guide, but anything covered in the College of Arts and Sciences Style Guide takes precedence over the guides used by the various departments.
Some departments prefer that students not prepare the final typed copy until after their final oral examinations. Copies of theses or dissertations supplied to examination committees, however, must be neatly typed and legible. Consult with the graduate coordinator concerning departmental policies and guidelines.
