Grad students: More ETDR walk-in clinics this week; less ETDR support on April 22 deadline

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.

5. Doctoral students only: Submit your dissertation to ProQuest

Grad students: Use ETDR writing template to save time, avoid problems

All K-State graduate students are required to submit their electronic thesis, dissertation, or report (ETDR) as part of the K-State graduation process. Some struggle with this process. The lucky ones have friends or colleagues who told them to start using a K-State ETDR template as soon as they begin writing. Because the sooner an ETDR writing template is used, the more it saves time and helps avoid formatting errors.

Stop by the new ETDR walk-in help sessions offered this semester: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. every Wednesday, Feb. 3-April 20, in 301A Hale Library.  Or make an appointment with an ETDR consultant by submitting an ETDR Request Form (requires eID and password).
