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 KEEP institutional repository) are managed solely by the ASU Graduate College.  ASU’s policies regarding theses and dissertation embargoes are determined by the ASU Graduate College. Embargoing through ProQuest is separate from embargoing through ASU. Once the ASU embargo expires, full documents are available through the ASU Repository.

For information or questions on embargo requests email 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
