Submitting Manuscripts Via ETD

ETD Submission Deadline

You must abide by the Graduate School initial deadline for manuscript draft submission. After it's evaluated, any corrections and/or missing materials will be due no later than 4:45 p.m. on the day of the (predetermined) final deadline.

Before Submission

At this point, your manuscript should already comply with Graduate School’s latest guidelines. Consider the following as you prepare for submission:

  • Submit manuscript as a single PDF file
  • Name the file: Lastname_Firstname.pdf (e.g., Smith_John.pdf)
  • Do not apply security settings to the PDF file
  • Do not embed multimedia in the PDF file

If Ready to Submit Through ETD

  • Create a student account and log into ETD
  • Click on the "Submit my dissertation/thesis" link
  • Do submit any other applicable and supplemental multimedia appendix files in the appropriate upload section

After Submission

Watch your SIUE email. You will receiveemails from the Graduate School reviewer alerting you of any required corrections. Your thesis will be considered complete only after you have made all required changes.

Once your manuscript is approved by the Graduate School, the Graduate Records office will ensure students have met all graduation requirements before giving FINAL approval.

ETD Processing Fees

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically; there is no paper option. You will be charged a one-time $95 processing fee by ProQuest/UMI after the entire submission process is completed.
