Thesis Checking

Dissertation /Thesis Checking

Before final submission, theses should be presented for scrutiny to the Library to ensure that graduate students comply with the requirements of the UWI Thesis Guide and Chicago Manual of Style on appropriate citation styles for references and bibliographies. Once these requirements are satisfied, the Library then certifies the thesis as acceptable. When a student’s thesis/dissertation has been approved by The University, the Alma Jordan Library’s Bindery will bind it at a cost. The thesis must also be submitted on CD-ROM at final submission to Graduate Studies.



The University has instituted a policy on graduate student plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as the “unacknowledged use of the words, ideas or creations of another.” Students are encouraged, therefore, to use ethical information practices and not infringe on the intellectual property rights of other persons. There are two levels of plagiarism, level one and level two and the associated penalties range from a zero grade for the paper to total disqualification from the final examination
