After successful online submission and approval of the thesis, three thesis copies are bound, via ProQuest, and then distributed. One copy is archived in the Galvin Library, and the other two copies are returned to the respective student's department. However, additional copies for personal use can be ordered, via ProQuest, during the online thesis submission process—costs vary--or the student can take a copy to Office Services, PH 041B, for binding. At Office Services, the cost is $25 per hardcover bound copy. Several color options are also available.

For more information regarding binding additional copies, contact Office Services at or at (312) 567-3068.
