Graduate Students: Thesis, Treatise, and Dissertation Writers

  • The manuscript formatting and submission process is published on the Graduate School’s website:  All content and clearance procedures are located under “Thesis, Treatise, Dissertation”, found by scrolling to the middle of the page.  In order to submit your manuscript successfully, you must adhere to the formatting rules found in the “Requirements for Electronic Theses, Treatises, and Dissertations,” as well as the deadlines outlined for the semester you plan to graduate.  There are two deadlines to adhere to: Format Review deadline which comes first, followed-by the Final Clearance deadline.  These deadlines occur before the semester is over so be sure to plan accordingly.  FSU theses, treatises, and dissertations are to be submitted to the Manuscript Clearance Advisor through your ProQuest ETD account. For additional information, please contact the Manuscript Clearance Advisor in The Graduate School, at (850) 644-3501.
