Thesis Seminars/Boot camps

https://www.grad-college.iastate.edu/thesis/seminars/

Thesis seminars are offered every semester to clarify Iowa State University's publishing requirements, graduation deadlines, submission procedures, and common problems for graduate theses and dissertations.  It is helpful to attend a Thesis Seminar when you first start working on your thesis or dissertation, the semester before you graduate, or in the semester you are graduating (if you have not yet attended). We will cover deadlines, formatting guidelines, and other helpful hints for working on your thesis/dissertation.

Thesis boot camps will provide individual help to students formatting their thesis or dissertation.  Students can use a computer in the lab setting or bring their own laptop and thesis file to work specifically on their manuscript and get individual help from thesis consultants.  See more detailed information below.

New:  The Graduate College and the Center for Communication Excellence (CCE) invite you to a hands-on “boot camp” guiding you through the final formatting of your thesis or dissertation. Graduate students often struggle with this final step of preparing this document for submission to ProQuest, so let us help you! CCE writing consultants specialized in thesis/dissertation formatting will be at the boot camp sessions to assist you in modifying your document to meet the submission requirements for the Graduate College. 

This event will take place in a computer lab, so you may bring an electronic copy of your thesis/dissertation on a flashdrive or saved onto your own laptop. You may sign up for one or both of the boot camp sessions, but we ask that you do attend those for which you register, as seating is limited and demand is high. Registration is free to all ISU graduate students.

Remember, that if you need help with other aspects of writing thesis or dissertation, CCE Thesis and Dissertation Writing Consultants are here to help throughout the summer. Make a free appointment here
