Five easy steps
Follow this five-step process (Type, Details, Access, Upload, Deposit) to submit your ETD.
After you deposit your ETD
Take your signed ETD Approval form and all necessary payment receipts and documents to the student services coordinator at your school. Your school will review the ETD and your supporting documents. If there are any problems, you will receive an e-mail from your school. Note that the review and approval processes vary among schools, and may take from several days to several months. Many schools do not approve ETDs until after the graduation date. Once your ETD is approved, you will receive an e-mail with the permanent URL for your ETD. On occasion, a graduate student may need to submit more than one ETD during the same term (e.g., an ETD for a master's thesis and another for a doctoral dissertation). If this situation applies to you, you will need to complete the entire submission and approval process separately for each ETD. You may submit your ETDs simultaneously, but you should submit each ETD as a new item, i.e., as its own separate record in D-Scholarship@Pitt. If you need help, contact your school's student services coordinator. For further information and instructions, please visit the University of Pittsburgh ETD Web site.
