Electronic Thesis & Dissertation (ETD) System

The ETD is an improved educational medium for sharing and expressing ideas that enables use of multimedia elements—such as diagrams, hypertext links, animations, databases, simulations, etc.—through most document preparation programs. Students enjoy real-time, worldwide access to scholars and timely access to technology, knowledge, and peer review.

Graduate and post-graduate students can use ETD to submit theses, dissertations, or doctoral research projects (hereafter referred to as manuscript/s) to the Graduate School for approval via ProQuest/UMI.

The first step in successfully submitting your manuscript is to confirm individual departmental requirements. You can ensure the fastest possible manuscript review by starting the process during the drafting phase.

You must ensure that you manuscript follows the Graduate School’s latest guidelines before submitting it for final review and approval. The Graduate School provides resources and information, including tutorial videos and workshops, to aid you throughout the overall process. We are happy to answer any questions at:
