Graduate students who plan to send their electronic theses, dissertations, and reports (ETDRs) to the Graduate School have about four weeks left before the semester deadline of 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, when ETDRs must be submitted via the K-REx system.
In addition to ETDR walk-in clinics every Tuesday through Nov. 8 in 301A Hale Library, five extended-help sessions are scheduled Nov. 14-18 in the Media Development Center, 213 Hale Library (adjacent to the IT Help Desk):
- Monday, Nov. 14 — 1-5 p.m.
- Tuesday, Nov. 15 — 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
- Wednesday, Nov. 16 — 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
- Thursday, Nov. 17 — 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Friday, Nov. 18 — 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Distance students and those not on the K-State-Manhattan campus may schedule Zoom and phone meetings on a first-come, first-served basis by using the ETDR Request Form (K-State eID/password required).
More about ETDR services is on the ETDR website at k-state.edu/grad/etdr.
|Oct. 28 update from the Graduate School: Students graduating this semester, fall 2016, may use the new title, author, and copyright formats but are not required to do so. Beginning in the spring 2017 semester, the Graduate School will only accept ETDRs formatted with the following new requirements.
Updated ETDR templates went online in mid-August. Graduate students and faculty advisers should be aware that major format changes were made this summer to the title, author name, and copyright statement in the 2016 templates for Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports. In addition, a new 500-word limit on abstracts (350 previously) was added to incorporate a change in January from the Graduate School.
ETDR templates downloaded prior to mid-August need to be updated to meet the new guidelines. For students who haven’t started writing in those templates, it may be faster to download a new template. To get help modifying an older ETDR template, submit an ETDR Request Form (eID/password required).

Limited ETDR support is available on Friday, April 22. Graduate students are encouraged to participate in one of the walk-in clinics scheduled earlier in the week. Here’s the full schedule of ETDR walk-in help clinics the week of April 18-22:
- Tue, April 19 — 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., 301A Hale Library
- Wed, April 20 — 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., 301A Hale Library
- Wed, April 20 — 1-5 p.m., 407 Hale Library
- Thu, April 21 — 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m., 301A Hale Library
- Fri, April 22 — 1-5 p.m., 407 Hale Library
Walk-in clinics are the fastest way to get ETDR help and answers. Although requests for individual, one-on-one meetings can be made via the ETDR Request Form (and may be necessary for distance students), the usual 24- to 48-hour response time may hinder students who need faster answers during the deadline week of April 18-22.
Top resources during ETDR submission deadlines
1. Graduation and ETDR submission checklist (plus deadlines)
2. Convert your ETDR to PDF
3. Select keywords and subject categories (tip: write them down). See the Guidelines for selecting keywords, and also the List of ProQuest subject categories.
4. Submit your ETDR to K-REx for Graduate School review. Watch the new 7-minute video of the K-REx submission process.
Graduate students and faculty advisers: ETDR walk-in workshops are scheduled over the next five weeks to provide faster help on Electronic Theses, Dissertations, and Reports before the Graduate School’s Nov. 20 semester deadline.
