The Neumann Library provides Microsoft Word templates to help you compose your dissertation in the format required by the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Templates define the correct pagination, margins, font size and style, and other formatting settings according to the guidelines specified in the guide.
Why use a template? Templates automate much of the dissertation formatting, saving you time. They make use of Styles, which are on the Home ribbon in Microsoft Word. A Style is a command used to format your text with predefined settings, including font size, spacing, indentation, and so on. If you highlight some text and click a style button, it will format that text according to the style. The Table of Contents will pull from these styles to automatically update the headings and page numbers.
The Dissertation Template is a comprehensive, 24-page outline that you can use for your dissertation. Whether your university has a template or you’ve begun the dissertation without one, this guide will be helpful to you as it includes a detailed descriptions of chapters 1-5 and subsections that help you, the doctoral student, flesh-out each chapter. The template is written to comply with most university requirements.
The Dissertation Template includes:
Currently the Graduate School does not supply an approved LaTEX template. Please be aware that using LaTEX does not remove your responsibility to make changes to your formatting when asked to do so by the Graduate School. Please be sure that you know how to customize your class files when using LaTEX for formatting.
For more information about modifying styles see Formatting How-Tos.

The thesis templates have been created to make it easy to prepare your thesis using LaTeX while adhering to the MIT Thesis Specifications. We make every effort to keep these up to date, but you should always consult the MIT Libraries Thesis Specifications before submitting your thesis. If you notice something in the Thesis Specifications that does not match the templates, please let us know by e-mailing us at thesis AT mit DOT edu.
When using templates, be sure to read the Standards for Preparing Theses and Dissertations, as there may be format requirements for your work that are outside the scope of these templates. Also, be sure to read and follow the template instructions.
LaTeX is generally used by Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. The LaTeX template requires knowledge of LaTeX coding and compiling.
These rules are taken from the KU Office of Graduate Studies Thesis or Dissertation Formatting Guidelines. To see the full thesis or dissertation formatting requirements, visit https://graduate.ku.edu/etd-formatting-and-working-multimedia-files
The templates below conform, as much as possible, to KU and ProQuest requirements as well as APA, Chicago Footnote, Chicago Author-Date and MLA styles in regard to heading styles and page numbering. They also have place-holder figures, tables and headings, which allows automatic table of contents, list of figures and list of tables to be pre-formatted and included as well. Footnotes are also pre-formatted for the Chicago-style documents. These documents are also already set up to embed fonts for you (as required by ProQuest).
Templates are designed to save you time in formatting your document, but they do not work exactly the same on all computers. Adjustments may be necessary. You are not required to use the templates, but the documents you submit must follow the same formatting. Using a UAB template does not guarantee compliance with Graduate School format requirements or with the requirements of your graduate program or committee. Templates require the accurate addition of your own information and may require the deletion of information that does not apply to your document (e.g., the List of Abbreviations line in the Table of Contents will have to the deleted if your document does not, in fact, have a List of Abbreviations).
Look at each template carefully before you use it to be sure your computer is displaying it correctly. (Compare to sample pages in the UAB Format Manual.) Print the page to be sure it also prints correctly. If it does not, you will need to either make adjustments to the template or create your own page.
