ETD Submission Guide

Describes the required steps for graduates to submit their work for inclusion into ProQuest's Dissertations & Thesis database.

Process for Administering ETDs

In order for students to submit Theses or Dissertations, the school, department or division must first identify an internal administrator. The system itself is relatively straight-forward to use; training department heads and local administrators generally takes less than an hour. Below are a few links provided by ProQuest (the vendor), which may prove helpful before or after training. 

Any problems post-submission or to check the status of submission or physical copies of theses or dissertations should be directed to ProQuest's Author and School Support Relations Team at 800.521.0600 or email

For faculty interested in participating in this service, the next step would be to contact Judy Drescher in the library.
