Electronic Thesis & Dissertation

ETD Resource Center


The ETD Resource Center website is designed to be your guide to navigating the ETD Process. It is essential that all thesis-masters and doctoral students become familiar with the submission process, registration process, and the formatting requirements. We know this can be intimidating, but we strive to make the process as simple and painless as possible. Our goal is to help you polish your ETD and ensure it looks as professional and consistent as possible. We want to see you graduate!

Important Information

ETD Registration Server Error

There is currently an issue with getting directly to the ETD registration site. Most students have found that after clicking the link to register, they are brought to a security warning screen. Please know that your information is secure, and we have updated all of the proper server certifications. At this time, we are still working to correct the issue.

To get through to the registration, you must click either "Advanced" or "Show details" (depending on your chosen browser) on that same security screen. It will then give you the option to continue to the registration website.

Certificate of Approval Online Submission

All students planning to graduate must submit a completed Certificate of Approval Packet.
