Students are be required to submit their Thesis or Dissertation electronically through the Electronic Thesis/Dissertation (ETD) process. The ETD is similar to its paper predecessor, however, rather than printing a hard copy for submission to the Graduate School, the thesis/dissertation is converted to a Portable Document Format (pdf) file for electronic submission to the Graduate School. No bound copies will be required from the student. All students will be required to make an appointment with the Degree Audit Specialist for a format check of the paper copy and for instructions on submission of the ETD.
For additional information about the preparation of the thesis or dissertation, based on the requirements for the ETD, the student is referred to the Graduate School publication, Guide to the Preparation of Theses and Dissertations.
