Grad students and advisers: No word limit in abstracts; ETDR walk-in help April 16-20

The spring semester deadline for submitting theses and dissertations to the Graduate School is 5 p.m. Friday, April 20.  Electronic theses, dissertations, and reports (ETDRs) must be submitted as PDFs through the K-REx repository.

Abstracts no longer have a word limit.  The Graduate School removed the abstract word limit for spring 2018 and on in the ETDR Guidelines (see “Required Sections”).  Other webpages and documentation are being updated.  The ETDR Handbook and ETDR writing templates will be updated this summer.

Three walk-in ETDR sessions are scheduled April 16-20, the ETDR semester deadline week, for help on Word, PDF conversion, K-REx, etc.

  • Monday, April 16 — 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 18 — 3-6 p.m.
  • Friday, April 20 — 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.  Continue reading “Grad students and advisers: No word limit in abstracts; ETDR walk-in help April 16-20”
