- At the time their Master's or Doctoral committee is formed, students are required to validate a Non-Exclisive License to the University of Windsor, which should be supplied by their programs, authorizing the University to archive, reproduce, and distribute the thesis or dissertation.

- The Universal Copyright Symbol, ©, must appear either on the title page or on the page immediately following, with the author's name and the year, for example,
