No endorsement is implied by the maintenance of this list, nor are authors restricted to employ the typists whose names appear here. However, any typist hired is expected to follow the university's formatting guidelines. These editors have no relationship to the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Students are responsible for their own work and choice of editor.

A competent typist or transcriptionist has up-to-date equipment in good repair and is at least as concerned as the author that the university's specifications for the dissertation or thesis are reflected in the typed copy. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the contractor has been given complete and precise instructions, including all information necessary to complete the work (e.g.,. the style manual that the author must follow for their discipline. It is expected that there will be ongoing communication between the student and typist throughout the process. The student is responsible for approving and proofreading the work prior to turning it in to the Office of Graduate Studies.
