Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD)

NOTICE: The Student Information System (SIS) will be unavailable on Sunday, November 23rd from 5:30am until 6pm in order to apply maintenance. During this time, all student self service functions (including ETD submission) will also be unavailable.

ETD stands for Electronic Thesis & Dissertation. The NCSU Graduate School is 100% electronic with Thesis & Dissertation processing. This means that all ETD reviews, ETD final submissions, Graduate School and Advisory Committee ETD approvals, NCSU Library cataloging and public access to NCSU ETDs are electronic (via the internet).

This ETD Website is a one-stop-shop for everything ETD. The ETD Guide explains in great detail the Graduate School’s formatting and production requirements, the review and final submission process, with step-by-step instructions and visual examples. The student should read the guide before writing and make sure to refer to the guide throughout the writing process.
