"The Guidelines for Preparation of Theses and Dissertations are designed to assist students and typists to maintain the high degree of accuracy and consistency which are hallmarks of well-written documents. Prior to the thesis/dissertation process, students should familiarize themselves with the procedures described in the guidelines. It is assumed that the guidelines will be used in conjunction with the approved style guide.
Theses and dissertations follow American Psychological Association, 6th ed. as their reference guide. The link below will take you to an APA Cheat Sheet provided by the University Libraries giving you some of the highlights of this edition.
