dissertation cover page template
Published on 19 February 2019 by Shona McCombes.
Your department will usually tell you exactly what should be included on your title page and how it should be formatted. Be sure to check whether there are specific guidelines for margins, spacing and font size.
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.

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.
