Theses and Dissertations

Submitting My Thesis or Dissertation Electronically

USU Libraries are committed to the preservation and open-access publication of USU theses and dissertations. As part of this commitment, USU requires that all final theses and dissertations be submitted electronically to Digital Commons, USU's institutional repository. To submit your thesis or dissertation, follow the instructions on our forms and instructions page.

Embargo Process

If your thesis or dissertation needs to be embargoed, a physical copy will need to be deposited with the Library. To start this process, please submit the Embargo Form.

Personal Bound Copies

USU no longer requires bound versions of theses and dissertations, except in cases of embargo. However, you can order a bound personal copy of your thesis or dissertation for $20.00 plus $4.00 for each cover pocket as needed. To request a binding, please bring your thesis or dissertation to the Circulation desk. For more information, please contact (435) 797-2601.
