We would like to add all dissertations to our online library as well as submit them to a variety of subscription based service. Because we are adding more PhD programs, to speed up this process, we have split up the work as follows:

  • ProQuest Dissertation & Thesis
  1. Go to and choose "Submit my dissertation/thesis.” 

  2. Select your school from the list provided. 

  3. Create an account or login using an existing account. 

  4. Once you create an account, the ETD Administrator will walk you through a simple process that involves accepting the publishing agreement and uploading the relevant files and information about your submission. 

  5. After you complete your submission, your graduate school administrator will review the submission before sending it to ProQuest Dissertation Publishing. 

  6. Note that all dissertations and theses must be submitted as a PDF document, BUT DO NOT upload your dissertation as a PDF file. Upload a Word file and let the site convert it using its conversion tool. For more information about creating PDF files, please see PDF Frequently Asked Questions.

  7. If you are having problems with the formatting required by ProQuest, Send your finalized dissertation  to  – he will direct you to what you need to change.
