The Graduate School no longer requires that students submit a paper copy of their theses or dissertations as their official copy. Official copies are now received electronically as ETDs. It has a title page with the author's name, the official name of the university, the degree conferred, and the names of the committee members. However, the document is submitted as an electronic PDF portable document format file instead of as a paper print out. ETD documents must be prepared in accordance with the Graduate School formatting guidelines for theses and dissertations. Please be careful when using existing templates you may have received from colleagues.
