Formatting Consultations

The Thesis & Dissertation Office recommends scheduling a Formatting Consultation prior to your defense date. This ensures that you will be 100% formatted before you defend, this way, you will only have to focus on content corrections post-defense and can help reduce the number of formatting errors that are typically caught during the deposit process.
