Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD)

Announcement: Some workshops have been scheduled for the coming months. Please scroll down for more info.

The Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) website is a one-stop shop for everything graduate students need for submitting their final documents electronically. The ETD Guide provides step-by-step instructions, with visual examples, to help explain the Graduate School’s formatting and production requirements. Students are encouraged to read the ETD Guide before writing and make sure to refer to the guide throughout the writing process. Using one of our ETD templates can also simplify the formatting process.

Before submitting the first ETD draft, all students should review the ETD Process page, which provides important details about each stage of the ETD review and approval process. 

ETD Submission System (Login to submit draft or final ETD)

The NC State Graduate School offers 100 percent electronic processing for graduate theses and dissertations. This means that all ETD reviews, ETD final submissions, Graduate School and Advisory Committee ETD approvals, and NCSU Library catalogs are electronic. The public may access NC State ETDs online on the library’s repository website.

A few ETD Workshops have been scheduled for the coming months. These workshops will provide an overview of the ETD submission process. The ETD Reviewer will explain submission deadlines and introduce the resources on this site that will help you prepare your document. Attendees are welcome to ask questions throughout the session.
