Grad students and advisers: ETDR walk-in help during Nov. 17 deadline week

The fall semester deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, for submitting theses and dissertations to the Graduate School (via the K-REx system).

Grad students who miss the ETDR walk-in clinic this week (5-6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, in 407 Hale Library) can take advantage of three ETDR help sessions during the deadline week Nov. 13-17:

Monday, Nov. 13 — 2-5 p.m. 
Thursday, Nov. 16 — 1-5 p.m. 
Friday, Nov. 17 — 1-5 p.m.

All sessions are in the Media Development Center, 213 Hale Library (adjacent to the IT Help Desk).  The MDC has both Windows and Mac computers, and all have Acrobat Pro for best PDF conversion.

Zoom conferences for distance students

During the deadline week, distance students and others not on the K-State-Manhattan campus may schedule individual Zoom conferences (no camera required) on a first-come, first-served basis.  Use the ETDR Request Form to suggest meeting times.
