Zoom conferences for distance students

During the deadline week, distance students and those not on the K-State-Manhattan campus can schedule individual Zoom conferences and phone meetings by using the ETDR Request Form (K-State eID/password required) on a first-come, first-served basis.

Need an ETDR review, but not a meeting?  

  1. Check your document with the ETDR Review Checklist.  It covers 99% of issues that cause ETDRs to be rejected.
  2. If you want a review by the ETDR consultant, use the ETDR Request Form (K-State eID/password sign-in) and attach your document by using the “paperclip” icon at top.  Request “Email” as the contact method.
