When filling out the chosen form please be sure to include the names of the publishers or the title of the journal to whom you are submitting your manuscripts.

- 6-Month Thesis Embargo to Campus Form. Should be used if you need to restrict thesis files to campus for 6 months. Please provide the reason for the embargo on the form.
- Thesis Embargo Exception Form. Should be used if you need to fully embargo the thesis files even from campus, or if you need to extend the initial 6-month restriction to or from campus for another 6 months. You will be required to receive approval from the Vice-Provost, Division Chair, Dean of Graduate Studies and University Librarian, and provide supporting documentation. Please read the Policy carefully to find out what kinds of requests are more likely to be approved. The supporting documentation should be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will then be forwarded on, along with your Exception request, to the 4 persons who will be making the decision.
