Requesting Capella Dissertations

In the past few months we have seen an increased demand from other libraries for dissertations written by Capella learners. This means that our learners are producing high quality relevant research. Keep up the good work!

How can a learner, faculty member, or librarian at another university acquire a copy of a Capella dissertation?

  • All dissertations written by Capella learners after 2001 are available through ProQuest UMI’s Dissertations and Theses full text database.
  • Capella University Library does not retain hard copies of dissertations. You may be able to purchase a hard or electronic copy through ProQuest/UMI Dissertation Express.

If you would like assistance using any of these electronic resources, contact your librarian.

I recently tried to access my own dissertation accepted on November 13 and can find it but can not access it because it is listed as not available.

I just went into Dissertations and Theses Full Text, and was able to find your dissertation. The record does include the full text.

I am looking to obtain a completed dissertation. However, this is not available via ProQuest (as previously) suggested. I have made this request at two different libraries and both have stated the same thing.

Can somebody email me on what steps need to be taken.
