ETD Help Sessions

Our Help Sessions are designed to allow students to meet with an ETD Specialist for 15 minutes, to ask any questions you may have, for help with tricky issues in Word, or to perform a quick review of common mistakes. We will not review your ETD manuscript during a help session.

Please note, the help sessions are not a substitute for the ETD Workshop. They are two completely different events. The Help Sessions are not required, but they are recommended for students who struggle with formatting. 

Remote help sessions

Individual, remote Help Sessions are available Monday - Friday, from 10AM until 3PM. Students must register at least a day in advance to reserve an appointment. If you need to cancel, email the ETD Help Desk and cancel your appointment as soon as possible to free up that space for another student. These help sessions are not required, but they are encouraged for any students with questions.
