Grad students and advisers: ETDR walk-in help Friday, Aug. 10

The summer semester deadline for submitting theses and dissertations to the Graduate School is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10.  Electronic theses, dissertations, and reports (ETDRs) must be submitted as PDFs through the K-REx repository. Use the following resources to finish up this week:

  1. Attend a walk-in ETDR help session 1-5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, in the Dickens 1 computing lab (located east of Hale Library). The lab has 32 Windows computers.
  2. Send an ETDR Request Form to get help via email on formatting issues, PDF conversion, K-REx, and so on. Attach thesis/dissertation files  by using the “paperclip” icon (near the Submit button or at top). Requests are answered within 24 hours during the deadline week. 
  3. Use the ETDR Review Checklist to catch 99% of errors that cause ETDR rejection by the Graduate School.

NOTE: No more word limit for abstracts!  The Graduate School removed the abstract word limit in spring this year; see “Required Sections” in the ETDR Guidelines.  Other ETDR documents are in the process of being updated.
