Q. My graduate theses or doctoral dissertation is embargoed through ProQuest, but I can do a Google search and download the full document.


ASU dissertations and theses (in the ASU Digital Repository) are managed solely by the ASU Graduate College.

  • Please read the FAQ entry linked below.
    • How do I restrict access to (embargo) my ETD? from the ASU Digital Repository guide's section on Copyright which includes this statement:
      • "ASU’s policies regarding theses and dissertation embargoes are determined by the ASU Graduate College, and are separate from those of ProQuest."
  • The section on Theses, Dissertations & Student Works in the same guide is also very informative.

For more information, questions, embargo requests, etc.:

  • Email the ASU Graduate College at gradformat@asu.edu
  • Be sure to include:
    • Your full name
    • ASU ID number
    • Year of graduation
    • Title of your document
    • Your email address
