Many University of Illinois graduate students are in programs that require the completion of a master's thesis or doctoral dissertation to earn a degree.
As of October 5, 2009, the Graduate College offers master's and doctoral students the option to submit an electronic thesis or dissertation (ETD) for review by and deposit with the Thesis Office. Students who have formatted their theses according to Graduate College thesis requirements and have obtained departmental approval for the thesis may submit an ETD now.
The ETD submission system for submitting a thesis is the result of a partnership between the Graduate College and the University's digital repository for research and scholarship, the Illinois Digital Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship (IDEALS).
A brief informational video about the ETD process is now available from the University Library in two formats:
