LaTeX Template
for FSU Theses and Dissertations


Before you can use the FSU LaTeX Thesis Template, you need to have a working LaTeX installation. Packages for most major operating systems are available at no cost.

  • Windows: the MiKTeX project provides everything needed for a Windows user.
  • Mac: MacTeX distribution has everything Mac users will need.
  • Unix/Linux: the TeX Live distribution is available through most package managers.
  • Web: instead of installing LaTeX on your own computer, you can create an account on Overleaf. You can upload the FSU Thesis Template zip file directly into your account and develop your manuscript in the cloud using Overleaf's tools.
