Submitting your file


Step 1: "native" file(s)

In addition to submitting your PDF file to UMI, we also ask that you submit the "native" version of your dissertation (for example, Microsoft Word version) to TCU's server. TCU will archive the native version as an extra measure of safety in case problems are ever found with the PDF version. If your thesis/dissertation contains more than one native file, please submit all files (one at a time) using this form.

The maximum size of a single file that can be uploaded using this form is 100MB. If you need to submit a native file larger than that, please send an email to LibSystems@tcu.edu, and we will make alternative arrangements to accept the file.
