University Dissertation & Thesis Services

George Mason University Libraries

Welcome to University Dissertation & Thesis Services!

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.


UDTS Coordinator Sally Evans will be out of the office all day Monday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 15.

During that time, no one will be available in the UDTS office for meetings, consultations, or assistance with formatting; furthermore, no one will be available to accept Final Submissions of documents and necessary materials.

Any document sent to us for a Format Review after 12:00 p.m. on Friday, April 11 will not be reviewed until Wednesday, April 16 at the very earliest.

When Sally returns to the office on Wednesday, April 16, she will respond to all emails and voicemails as soon as possible.
