Template Image






The template contains the pages and styles you need to format your paper. If you are new to the template, please watch the thesis brief. If you still have questions, contact a thesis processor. Microsoft Word must be version 2013 or later (or Mac equivalent). The template functions best with Word 2016, so we recommend downloading that version. Download Microsoft Office, which contains Word, here. We do not recommend, however, upgrading versions in the middle of writing of your thesis. If you do, please follow the compatibility settings carefully before upgrading.

Do not use Word Online or Word apps to create your thesis. These programs are likely to severely change your formatting.
