Grad students and advisers: ETDR walk-in help sessions Nov. 6-16

The fall semester deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 for submitting ETDRs (electronic theses, dissertations, and reports) to the Graduate School.  All ETDRs must be submitted as PDFs through the K-REx repository system.  Use the resources below to help finish by the deadline.

Walk-in ETDR help sessions Nov. 6-16

  • Nov. 6 (Tue) — 5-7 p.m.
  • Nov. 7 (Wed) — 4-6 p.m.
  • Nov. 9 (Fri) — 3-5 p.m.
  • Nov. 13 (Tue) — 5-7 p.m.
  • Nov. 15 (Thu) — 5-7 p.m.
  • Nov. 16 (Fri) — 1-5 p.m.

All sessions are in the Media Center in Seaton Hall, Room 1 (basement level). The center has Windows and Mac computers, scanners, Microsoft Office suite, and Acrobat Pro software to fix problems with PDF conversion. 

Review your ETDR before uploading to K-REx   

Use the ETDR Review Checklist (PDF, 2 pages) and save time and stress.  It catches 99% of errors that cause ETDR rejection by the Graduate School.

Use the ETDR Request Form to request a review by the ETDR consultant.  (The form requires K-State eID/password sign-in.)  Attach your file with the paperclip icon near the Submit button. Requests are answered by the consultant within 24-48 hours Monday-Friday.

Reminder:  ETDR requirements have changed in 2017-2018

  • Abstracts no longer have a word limit. The Graduate School removed the word limit this spring.  See “Required Sections” in the Formatting Your ETDR webpage.
  • Author name must be uppercase/lowercase format (not ALL CAPS) and should match the student’s name shown in KSIS records. 
  • Copyright line has a symbol, author name, year, and period. Format:  © Your Name Here 2018.
  • Title format must be Sentence case (not CAPS or Capitalize Each Word). Example:  Effects of prescribed fire timing on vigor of sericea lespedeza in the Kansas Flint Hills
