Due to differences in the Graduate College formatting requirements and the way Microsoft Word handles formatting, our template does NOT match the Graduate College requirements 100%.  It is close (95%), but everyone will have to do some additional manual formatting to get their thesis in final form.  The most current documentation is now on the web. See the documentation section below, pertaining to instructions on how to use the UI Thesis Template.dot.

Please note:

  • It is recommended that you use one of the two most recent versions of Microsoft Word to format your thesis.
  • Limited support and template revisions are available for older versions.
  • Only English versions of your Windows or Macintosh Operating System and only English versions of Microsoft Word are compatible with the UI Thesis Template.
