Major Research Project

COVID-19 update: During virtual operations, we are modifying the theses and dissertation submission process to make it simpler for you, and to remove the requirement to drop off any paperwork in person.

Please read the updated instructions (PDF: Update to thesis submission instructions/Word: Update to thesis submission instructions) carefully, alongside the standard Format Procedures form listed below, to see how the process has been modified.


Submission of an electronic version of your Major Research Project is optional, unless otherwise indicated by your department or professor. If you choose to submit, please follow the procedures indicated below. The PDF version will appear in the university's institutional repository.

All documents are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format or Microsoft Word format. Paper copies of required forms are also available at the library's information desk.

Required Forms



Template (Word): Templates of the signature page, title page, and abstract page that can be downloaded and used in creating your project.
