Thesis and Dissertation

General information

To graduate, students must submit their dissertation or thesis to ProQuesta digital repository of scholarly works. Theses and dissertations will also appear in Niner CommonsUNC Charlotte’s new institutional repository. It is highly recommended that students attend an individual formatting review (either in person or virtually) or a formatting workshop in the Center for Graduate Life to complete the submission process and understand the steps toward graduation.

Formatting workshops and general on-line information

Aside from the formatting and submission information on this site (found under the "Current Students" tab), formatting workshops are scheduled throughout each semester. These workshops provide an overview of the thesis and dissertation submission process and Graduate School formatting and graduation requirements. Students are invited to bring their own documents and ask questions. Please visit the Center for Graduate Life events calendar to register.  

A formatting and submission playlist can also be found on the Center for Graduate Life's YouTube channel.

For thesis or dissertation formatting or submission questions, email Dr. Aura Young (

The deadlines for all graduation milestones can be found on the Registrar's Calendar.
