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.

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.
