Our coronavirus update page contains information about the changes to policies, procedures, deadlines and more that are being made in response to COVID for the graduate community specifically. It will be updated as needed. As part of the graduation requirements for students completing theses, dissertations, or doctoral projects, once final documents are accepted by the Graduate College as complete, approved, and properly formatted, students must then submit their final approved document electronically to ProQuest and Digital Scholarship UNLV by the appropriate deadline each semester. Theses and dissertations must be properly formatted according to both the style guidelines used in your discipline and the format required by UNLV. Presetting your formatting will ease formatting-induced frustrations in the long-term.
