MFA students at The University of Tampa have an option to embargo their work when submitting to the repository. This means that you can choose to permanently restrict access of your work to The University of Tampa community, or place a 1, 3, or 5 year embargo on the work, making it available only to the University community for this set time, before releasing it freely on the web through the repository. Students also have the option to make their work freely available online through the repository immediately.
