Once you've defended successfully and have made the changes your committee recommended, submit your post-defense draft to the dissertation editor one week after you defend. For instructions on how to submit your document, please reference the ETD process guidelines.

If the dissertation editor has given you permission to upload your PDF to the ETD Database, convert your Word file to a PDF, if you have not already done so.

SENDING YOUR LARGE DOCUMENTS BY E-MAIL

If you are sending a large file to the Dissertation Editor, use your CaneID and password to send files via SecureSend. Refer to IT's usage guide for instructions on how to use the file transfer system.

UPLOADING YOUR DOCUMENT

The dissertation editor will instruct you to upload a PDF of your manuscript to the ETD database within 48 hours. Contact the Digital Media Services lab in Richter Library for assistance with making a PDF.

After converting to a PDF, visit the final steps page for more instructions.
