Documents should be submitted electronically in PDF format via the Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) website. Please note that this link takes you to the Vireo site for UTA. We are no longer accepting submissions through the ProQuest ETD Administrator site. Students who would like their document to be sent to ProQuest will have the option to do so within the Vireo site.
Thesis and dissertation documents must be written in the format approved by your committee and committee chair. The Library no longer does mechanical checks. Please speak with your advisor about formatting issues.
