The TAMIU Thesis and Dissertation Policy Manual and the TAMIU Thesis and Dissertation Formatting Manual have been created to assist graduate students and their committee members in the preparation of theses and dissertations. The purpose of these manuals is to provide guidelines on uniform standards of style and format while allowing enough flexibility to satisfy the acceptable practices of each academic discipline.

These links will take you to copies of the manuals.

TAMIU Thesis and Dissertation Policy Manual

TAMIU Thesis and Dissertation Formatting Manual


Available for MA, MS, and PhD students who are looking for help with their formatting (APA, MLA, Chicago, and other styles all welcome), their structure and organization, sentences and grammar, or brainstorming or discussion. Our writing consultant can also help facilitate contact between students and thesis-related faculty. If you need the latest TAMIU thesis manual or are just need someone to bounce ideas off of, our writing consultant is available. This is NOT a drop-off editing service. While he can point out errors or necessary corrections, please do not email him your thesis or dissertation and expect fixed edits. Wait times for thesis and dissertation are expected to be very busy near the end of each semester, especially in the Fall or Spring.

Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Any student who plans on doing research with human participants must have their research approved by the Institutional Review Board before commencing the data collection. The IRB is the Texas A&M International University committee that reviews and approves protocols, which use human participants in research. All the research involving human subjects must be approved by the IRB before commencing research.

IRB reviews the protocols to ensure that the rights and welfare of the participants are protected and the proposed use of human participants is in compliance with federal, state and university regulations. Researchers must submit an IRB protocol form and all necessary documents with the faculty mentor listed as the principal investigator and the student listed as a co-principal investigator to the IRB for review. Please visit the IRB web page for more information.

Visit our TAMIU DSpace Repository. This is a service that allows for the collection, preservation, and distribution of digital material. This is meant to facilitate scholarly communication. Feel free to browse through our current collections of material.
