You may find these downloadable samples useful as you prepare your thesis/dissertation. Be aware, however, that they are provided only as examples of what a properly formatted submission looks like, and do not explain every requirement your thesis/dissertation must follow. For specific instructions, refer to the ETD Formatting Guide. In addition to containing red text to indicate content that needs to be changed in your document, one of the samples also displays instructions, reminders, and tips in blue text. The other sample has no annotations, and is indicative of how a final submission should appear.
