  • ETD Formatting Workshops ✏️


    Held virtually via Microsoft Teams, dates TBD.
    Join Workshops

    Online Weekly Formatting Workshops cover:
    1) An Overview of Available Resources for Formatting the ETD
    2) An Overview of USF's Institutional Guidelines for Formatting ETDs
    3) TOC and Front Matter Instructions
    4) Individual Help with Formatting in a Group Setting

    These are meant to help with ETD-specific formatting.  

    The Weekly Formatting Workshops are different from the ETD Process Workshop which is only held once a semester.

    What's the difference? 
    The ETD Process Workshop covers all aspects of the process from Registration to Review and should be attended by all Graduate students completing a Thesis or Dissertation. These Formatting Workshops cover formatting only and are not a substitute for the ETD Process Workshop.
    15-minute Individual sessions for formatting are also available and can be scheduled through a booking.
