              Rules Governing Registration in 594/794 or the Equivalent


Students wishing to avoid registration in 594, 794 or the equivalent must first submit
their completed and signed graduation paperwork to the Graduate School and then, once
cleared, upload their manuscript to the Graduate School by the Add/Drop date of the fall
or spring semesters.

Registration in 594, 794 or the equivalent is required in each term (excluding summer)
until the student completes, defends, makes any post-defense revisions, and submits the
thesis or dissertation to the Thesis Editor.

Students who do not submit all their graduation paperwork and upload their manuscripts
before the Add/Drop date for the fall and spring semesters must register for 594, 794 or
the equivalent for that term.

Please note the submission deadlines for spring 2007 below.

   1. The Add/Drop date for spring 2007 is Friday, January 26, 2007.

   •   Students who wish to avoid registration in 594, 794 or the equivalent must submit
       all completed and signed graduation paperwork in person to the Graduate School
       by Friday, January 26, 2007, by 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
                                             and
   •   Students must also upload their thesis or dissertation by Friday, January 26,
       2007, by 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.

Failure to meet both of these deadlines will require registration in 594, 794 or the
equivalent in the spring 2007 term.

   2. Students who have not submitted all graduation paperwork and their manuscripts
      by the Add/Drop date, and who, therefore, have registered in 594, 794 or the
      equivalent in spring 2007, may still be considered for spring 2007 graduation if:

   •   Completed and signed graduation paperwork is submitted in person to the
       Graduate School by Monday, April 2, 2007, by 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard
       Time.
                                           and
   •   The manuscript is uploaded to the Graduate School by Monday, April 2, 2007,
       by 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.

Failure to meet both of these deadlines will mean that a student will no longer be eligible
for spring 2007 graduation.



                                                                                           1
Please Note:

   •   Students must first be cleared by the Thesis Editor in order to upload the
       manuscript.
   •   All manuscripts submitted without clearance will be rejected.
   •   Students are cleared when the Graduate School’s Thesis Editor approve all
       graduation paperwork (see below).
   •   Students will be notified by email that they have been cleared to upload the
       manuscript.
   •   A student’s obligation to register in 594, 794 or the equivalent will end once the
       Graduate School verifies that a student has submitted his/her graduation
       paperwork and uploaded the manuscript by the Add/Drop date.

             been made and approved.
         o The Approval to Submit Final Copy of Master’s Thesis form can be

             the student has made all changes to the manuscript as requested by the

A. Introduction:
Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the University’s rules and regulations
regarding the formatting of manuscripts as well as the submission and verification of supporting
documents. Please do not use old USC theses/dissertations as errors may have been overlooked
or the guidelines have changed. The Graduate School has not created, nor do we endorse any
software programs or templates, even if such programs exist at the departmental level.

All manuscripts are read and paperwork processed in the order received. Students are advised to
plan their defenses and submission dates accordingly.

Please be advised that the Graduate School cannot write and issue letters verifying near-
completion or completion of the degree.


B. Deadlines:
Degrees are conferred three times a year: at the end of the fall and spring semesters and at the
end of the last summer session. All submission deadlines will be strictly enforced. There are
no exceptions. Students should schedule their defenses in time to make all their changes and
corrections as well as to obtain the necessary signatures in advance of the deadline date.

The following submission steps are all required:

   •   Create a profile on the USC Thesis and Dissertation Online Processing Web site in the
       semester you anticipate filing your manuscript with the Graduate School.
   •   Students must all their completed graduation paperwork in person to the Graduate School
       by 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard Time by the deadline date.
   •   Once cleared, students must also submit their manuscript electronically by 11:59 p.m.,
       Pacific Standard Time by the deadline date.

Note, only students who submit their paperwork for a particular semester’s deadline will be
cleared to submit their manuscript electronically. All manuscripts submitted without paperwork
will be rejected and the student will be automatically disqualified from being eligible for a
graduation date in a desired term.

Please note: Turning in a manuscript by the deadline date and time does not guarantee that
a student will be awarded the degree in the corresponding term; it only makes a student
eligible for that graduation date.

A student’s graduation date will be advanced to another term if:

   •   The student fails to make all his/her corrections in the time allotted
   •   The student fails to make all his/her corrections by the conferral date
   •   The student’s paperwork is incomplete and/or lacking original and authorized signatures
                                                                                                   2
A student will be awarded the graduation date for the term in which he/she academically and
administratively fulfills all requirements for the degree (regardless of the submission date),
including the approval of a final version of the manuscript and the submission and verification of
all supporting documents, as well as the completion of any outstanding degree requirements.
Degrees will not be awarded retroactively.


C. Documentation:
The following documentation items must be submitted to the Graduate School before being
cleared to upload your manuscript.

   1. Approval to Submit Defended and Final Copy of Doctoral Work or Approval to
      Submit Final Copy of Master’s Thesis form (replaces Final Typing Card):
         a. Signed by the entire committee and dated by the chair only after the satisfactory
            completion of the thesis/dissertation defense and unanimous approval of the
            committee.

   2. Verifications of the Completion of the Requirements for the Doctoral (Master’s)
      Degree Form (replaces Triple Cards):
         a. Signed/dated by the Graduate Advisor and Dean, Department Chair or Director.
         b. Advisors are permitted to submit this form after the student submits the
             manuscript. However, without it, a student will not be cleared to graduate.

   3. Documentation Review Form (Checklist)
         a. Signed/dated by both the student and the Graduate Advisor.

   4. Publication Fee Receipt- $110 (Doctoral)/ $100 (Master’s)
         a. Payment is accepted at the Cashier’s Office – UPC and HSC.

   5. Survey of Earned Doctorates
         a. Completed by all doctoral students. The results are used by governmental and
            private agencies to support new and existing educational programs.

   6. Copy of the Report on Qualifying Exam indicating dissertation committee OR copy of
      most current and Dean Approved Appointment/Change of Committee Form indicating
      most current committee of record
         a. Applicable for all Ph.D. and Master’s degrees under the jurisdiction of the Graduate
             School (Appendix H)

      A. Title Page: See Appendix D for formatting instructions.

      B. Epigraph, Dedication, Acknowledgements and/or Preface: Double-spaced.

      C. Table of Contents: Single space entries; double space between main entries and
         chapters. Include page numbers for every Table of Contents entry. Do not italicize or
         bold page numbers. Align page numbers properly to the right margin. Do not allow text
         to enter the column of page numbers (Appendix B).

      D. List of Tables/Figures: Include full table/figure titles and the corresponding page
         numbers. Single space the entries; double space between entries. Do not italicize or bold
         page numbers. Align page numbers properly to the right margin. Do not allow text to
         enter the column of page numbers (Appendix C).

      E. Abbreviations, Glossary: Single space entries; double space between entries.

      F. In Text-Abstract: Text must be double-spaced. Abstracts for doctoral students should
         be no more than 350 words; for Master’s students, no more than 150 words. NOTE: An
         in-text abstract is required. ProQuest and the USC Libraries require you to provide
         them with an abstract during the uploading process.



                                                                                                               4
   G. Body: Double space throughout, except for block quotations (single-space block
      quotations). Manuscripts more than 50 pages should have numbered chapter headings
      that are listed in the Table of Contents. Do not give Bibliography or Appendices a
      chapter number.

   H. Alphabetized Bibliography: An alphabetized bibliography comprehensive to all
      chapters at the end of your manuscript is required regardless of whether you have chapter
      endnotes or chapter reference sections. Bibliographic entries must be presented in
      alphabetical order by the first author's last name. Do not allow bibliographic entries to
      split over pages; they must be complete on one page.

       If you use citational indexes in the body, you can retain the numbers in the bibliography,
       but present the references alphabetically. In other words, the references will be in
       alphabetical order, but not in numerical order.

       A bibliography is required even though your discipline does not require it. Exception:
       musical scores.

   I. Appendices: Appendices must follow the guidelines in terms of pagination and margins,
      but may include alternate spacing or fonts.

2. MARGINS
All text, including tables, figures, page numbers and appendices must fit within the margin
requirements. The following are the required minimum and maximum margin settings
(Appendix I).
        • Top:        1- 1.1 inches
        • Bottom:     1- 1.1 inches
        • Right:      1- 1.1 inches
        • Left:       1.5 – 1.7 inches

3. PAGE NUMBERS
      a. All pages must be numbered consecutively in the same location and in the same
         orientation including the first page of every chapter/section and the appendices, with
         the exception of the Title Page.

       b.   Page numbers must be placed either in the top right or bottom right side of the page
            (centered pages not accepted). Page numbers must fit within the margin
            requirements (adjust header/footer depending on the location of the page number to
            1.0 or 1.1). (Appendix I).

       c.   All page numbers, including those of the appendices, must be of the same font and
            size as the body font, in plain font style (no bold). They must not include periods,
            hyphens, parentheses or running page headers or footers.



                                                                                                    5
       d. At least one double space MUST separate every page number from any text, tables,
          figures or footnotes. For page numbers in the top right corner, the first line of type
          should be one double space below. For page numbers in the bottom right corner, the
          last line of type should be one double space above.

        e. Though tables and figures may be “landscaped,” or presented sideways on the page,
           page numbers may not (Appendices E & F). All page numbers must be oriented
           in the same direction throughout the manuscript.

4. SPACING
All text throughout the body of the manuscript must be double-spaced. Exceptions:

           a. Block Quotations: Quotations of 40 words or more should be single space and
              indented in block from the left margin.

           b. Tables and Figures within the Manuscript: Single space text in tables and
              figures, including table and text figure captions, legends, and notes.

           c. Footnotes and Chapter Endnotes: Single space footnotes and chapter endnotes;
              double space between chapter endnotes.

           d. Bibliography Entries: Single space entries; double space between entries.

5. PARAGRAPHS & JUSTIFICATION
To indicate a new paragraph, either indent the first line of the paragraph or double space
between paragraphs. Manuscripts may be justified at the left margin, or at both margins.

6. HEADINGS
All preliminary page and chapter headings (dedication through appendices) as well as table and
figure headings must be consistent in font size, typeface, placement, and style.

7. FONT & TYPEFACE
   Use same (readable) font (at least 10 point) throughout the manuscript, including block
   quotations. Do not bold text unless indicating a new heading. Exceptions:
        • Chapter titles/section headings may be 2 to 4 points larger than the body font.
        • Footnotes, endnotes, and text appearing in tables and figures, including labels,
           legends, and captions, may be as small as 9 point.

8. WIDOWS AND ORPHANS
A widow occurs when the last line of a paragraph is the first line of a page. To eliminate a
widow, add a space to the previous page so that the last two lines of the paragraph appear at the
top of the next page. An orphan occurs when a heading or the first line of a paragraph is the last
line of a page. To eliminate an orphan, add an extra space to that page so that the heading or first
line of the paragraph falls on the next page.


                                                                                                   6

9. FOOTNOTES AND CHAPTER ENDNOTES
     a. Endnotes must appear at the end of each chapter.

       b. Single space footnotes and chapter endnotes; double space between chapter endnotes.

       c. Page numbers should not “crash” into your footnotes; they must be separated by at
          least one double space.

10. TABLES AND FIGURES:
      a. All tables and figures must fit within the margin requirements.

       b. Each table and figure must have a number and heading, and must be listed in the List
          of Tables or the List of Figures.

       c. All table (figure) headings, captions and legends must be consistent in style and size
          with all other table (figure) headings, captions and legends.

       d. Each tables/figure must be placed as close as possible to the place in the body where
          mentioned, not at the end of chapters or manuscript or the appendices.

       e. If a table or figure crosses over pages, it must repeat the table/figure number and
          include the word “continued” (i.e., Table 1, Continued).

       f. Wide tables and figures may be landscaped, or placed sideways. Landscaped
          tables/figures must face out of the binding age, with the top of the table/figure at the
          left margin. Page numbers must not be landscaped (Appendices E & F).

       g. Table and figure headings, captions, notes or legends should be on the same page as
          the table or figure. Lengthy table and figure headings (with their accompanying
          captions, notes, and legends) which do not fit on the same page may be placed by
          themselves on a separate page immediately preceding the table or figure. This is
          called a “half-title page.” Half-title page headings should be double-spaced.

                                                                                                                          7

      APPENDIX F: HOW TO CREATE LANDSCAPE PAGE NUMBERS IN
                       PORTRAIT POSITION

For WORD users only

How to Change a Table to a Landscape Position:
   1. Insert table into text on the page(s) you would like it to appear. The table will
      appear in portrait format.
   2. Place the cursor before the table that will be on a landscaped page.
   3. Go to the Standard Tool Bar - Insert…Page break…Next page. Click OK.
   4. Place the cursor at the end of the table that will be on a landscaped page.
   5. Go to the Standard Tool Bar - Insert…Page break…Next page. Click OK.
   6. Place the cursor anywhere on the page that will be landscaped and select File…Page
      Setup…Layout and select the landscape orientation.
          a. If the margin set up does not change automatically, insure that your top
              margin is either 1.5 or 1.7 and the left margin is 1.0 or 1.1, both depending on
              your original margin setting.

How to Change the Landscaped Page Number to a Portrait Position:
   1. On the Standard Tool Bar, go to View…Normal.
   2. Then go to View…Header and Footer. The Same as Previous icon (text) will
      appear and must be removed. The icon can be removed by clicking on the Link to
      Previous icon on the Header/Footer tool bar. Remove the Same as Previous icon for
      BOTH the header and the footer. Note: This should be done regardless of where
      the page number is located.
   3. For portrait pages located on the bottom right: Open Footer and delete page
      number on the landscaped page only. Do not exit the Footer.
   4. While still in the Footer, use the dialog box and click on Insert Page Number.
   5. Keep the dialog box open. Go to the Standard Tool Bar and click on Insert...Insert
      Page Numbers. Adjust the Alignment function to Right.
   6. Move the cursor to the page number located in the Footer and right click the mouse.
      Move the cursor so that a vertical/horizontal arrow appears over the number. Right
      click the mouse and select Format Picture.
   7. Adjust the values in the Frame dialog box to the following:
          a. Text Wrapping: Around
          b. Size:
                    i. Width: Auto at… leave blank.
                   ii. Height: Auto at… leave blank.
          c. Horizontal:
                    i. Position Left at Relative to Margin
                   ii. Distance from text: 0”
          d. Vertical:
                    i. Position 0’’ at Relative to Paragraph
                   ii. Distance from text: 0”
          e. Move with Text Icon should be checked.
          f. Click OK.
                                                                                            27
   8. Highlight page number and go to the Standard Tool Bar… Format… Text Direction…
      and select the TEXT box on the right. This will orient the page number (not the
      table itself). Click OK.

How to Correct the Page Number on the Next Portrait Page

   1.   Change the portrait page to a landscaped position
   2.   Remove the Same as Previous icon from the Header/Footer page
   3.   Delete the page number
   4.   Return the page to a portrait position
   5.   Return to the Header/Footer function and use the Insert…Page…Numbers function
        and adjust the alignment

                                           TIPS:
                   Do not assume that the default settings of your program
               are acceptable—they probably are not! Reset them.

                   Do not assume that the document is fine once you’ve reset
               the computer settings. It is your responsibility to check the
               physical document

                   Do not use this page as a physical template

                  Make sure there’s at least ¼” (Double Space) between
               your page number and any text.
