The path toward achieving your Master's degree or PhD can be a long and arduous one. It can be complicated, stressful, and frustrating.
But that's why UDTS is here.
We exist to help Mason graduate students prepare, format, and complete their theses, dissertations, and projects, and to turn them in CORRECTLY and ON TIME.
We'll help walk you through the process; we'll review your document to make sure the formatting is correct; we'll make sure you have all of the tools you need; and we'll answer any questions you have. Our goal is to make this time as stress-free as possible for you.
We're also here to assist GMU faculty and staff in need of information and/or assistance regarding the preparation and submission of dissertations, theses, and projects.
