Grad students: Use ETDR writing template to save time, avoid problems

All K-State graduate students are required to submit their electronic thesis, dissertation, or report (ETDR) as part of the K-State graduation process. Some struggle with this process. The lucky ones have friends or colleagues who told them to start using a K-State ETDR template as soon as they begin writing. Because the sooner an ETDR writing template is used, the more it saves time and helps avoid formatting errors.

Stop by the new ETDR walk-in help sessions offered this semester: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. every Wednesday, Feb. 3-April 20, in 301A Hale Library.  Or make an appointment with an ETDR consultant by submitting an ETDR Request Form (requires eID and password).
