The Graduate School supports a Microsoft Word template and a La Te X class file designed to meet the requirements outlined in the Formatting Guide.
Students are expected to use one of the provided templates to standardize the formatting in the most efficient way possible.
Formatting check reviews may be suspended temporarily during formal submission deadlines so we can focus our full attention on the students who are graduating that term.
Consult the calendar of Academic Year Deadlines to plan your requests accordingly.This is a living document and will be updated periodically.If you would like to add information about your school's policies and procedures, please contact Ohio LINK Support.The results of the formatting check will be posted here in the form of a commented PDF so that either editor can access the notes if you have a question after the review.Once the comment files are uploaded, the Graduate School will email your Notre Dame account to invite you as a collaborator to the Box folder so you can access our comments.If you have follow-up questions, please email the shared [email protected] account for fastest service.Turnaround time for formatting checks depends on proximity to review and submission deadlines; allow at least 3 business days early in the term, and up to three weeks as we approach the formatting check deadline for a given semester.Back to Table of Contents OSU - It is the responsibility of the student to secure appropriate approvals and add citations to the document.The Graduate School does not monitor these approvals.We strongly recommend the use of citation management software in compiling your bibliography for any research document as complex as a dissertation or thesis.Refer to the Hesburgh Library resources on the Author Resources page for assistance.
