FORMAT GUIDEBOOK FOR THESES AND DISSERTATIONS

C. Submission Procedures Commented [FP1]: For CEB Review

The deadline for submission of loose leaf theses and dissertations is at least one workweek
before the last day for the submission of grades for graduating students to provide sufficient time
for content and format checking, corrections and binding. For example, if the deadline for
submission of grades is June 7, theses and dissertations must be approved for binding by
the adviser before May 31.

Undergraduate and masters theses must be hardbound using maroon leatherette with gold
lettering. Doctoral dissertations must be hardbound using black leatherette with gold lettering.

The filenames for the digital files (either the document version or the digital version of the
production work) should be as follows: Last Name, First Name Middle Name; the month and
year of graduation; and the title of the thesis/dissertation (Ex.: De la Cruz, Juana Santos 04-07 A
Case Study of the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication)

The CD/DVD must be submitted in a thin transparent plastic case without any special cover or
label. Simply write the title and the name/s of the author/s on the disc itself using an alcohol-
based CD/DVD marker. The ink of ordinary pentel pens penetrates the disc and destroys the
files. Consult the CMC Library for an example.

To be considered for graduation, an undergraduate student should submit the following to his/her
