Binding your thesis or dissertation is OPTIONAL. ONCE YOUR SUBMISSION TO PROQUEST HAS BEEN APPROVED, you are free to bind for personal use.
SPECIAL NOTE: RIT Libraries has made the difficult decision to permanently cease accepting print copies of thesis/dissertations for binding as of March 20th, 2020.
Once your submission has been approved AND delivered to ProQuest you will be able to purchase bound copies through ProQuest. We are recommending that students and departments utilize ProQuest as the secured vendor for publishing thesis/dissertations. ProQuest is the preferred bindery to ensure the acceptance of the thesis/dissertation.
Pricing information is available once you go to the ProQuest website. We do not have control of the prices charged by ProQuest for a bound copy of a thesis/dissertation. Bound copies may be ordered and reordered at any time.
In your final acceptance email, there will be a link provided on how to access your ProQuest account at any time. Please refer to that email if you wish to purchase bound copies.
For spiral comb binding, please contact the HUB or another office printing service.
