Tropical Plant Pathology
Graduate Student Handbook

Theses and Dissertations

The Graduate Division has a style and policy manual which must be followed. However the acceptable style is very broad and most Tropical Plant Pathology students follow a journal article format. You should agree upon a style with your Adviser. All previous plant pathology theses and dissertations can be found in our library and you may use these as guides.


The acceptability of the final version of any thesis or dissertation will be decided by majority of the Advisory Committee and officially recognized with the signing of the signature page. There are no minimum or maximum page numbers. Multiple original signature pages should be obtain to submit to the Graduate Division and the department.


Theses and dissertations are due at the Graduate Records Office by the deadline specified in the Academic Calendar. The Tropical Plant Pathology Graduate Faculty requires a printed copy of your thesis/dissertation on a high quality acid-free or 100% cotton paper. This departmental copy will be bound and placed in the Plant Pathology Library.
