Format Review Process

After the specifications in these Guidelines have been incorporated into the thesis or dissertation, a student needs format approval. Please contact Liz Leis at liz.leis@vanderbilt.edu  or 322-3934 or Linda Harris at linda.harris@vanderbilt.edu or 322-3943 to schedule an appointment. This meeting requires less than an hour. It is helpful to send your document in advance, as an email attachment. 

Students who no longer reside in Nashville must adhere to the specifications in these Guidelines. Many students schedule a meeting time when they are on campus for their defense. Manuscripts can be sent for format review electronically. Students are responsible for ensuring that all documents are received. The Graduate School address is Alumni Hall, Room 117, Vanderbilt University, 2205 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 37240.
