Grad students and advisers: ETDR walk-in help sessions Aug. 9-11

The summer deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, for submitting electronic theses, dissertations, and reports (ETDRs) to the Graduate School via the K‑REx repository system (krex.k-state.edu).

Walk-in help sessions are scheduled the last three days of the ETDR deadline week:

Wednesday, Aug. 9 — 3-6 p.m. 
Thursday, Aug. 10 — 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 
Friday, Aug. 11 — 2-5 p.m.

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

Zoom conferencing for distance students

During the deadline week, students 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.

Want a preliminary review of your ETDR?  

  1. Before you submit your ETDR to K-REx, use the ETDR Review Checklist to catch 99% of errors that cause ETDR rejections.
  2. Use the ETDR Request Form (requires eID/password sign-in) to get a review by the ETDR consultant. Use the “paperclip” icon at top to attach your Word file or PDF, and specify “Email” as the contact method.

More about ETDR resources is on the ETDR website at k-state.edu/grad/etdr.
