Master’s students who complete a thesis, and all PhD and EdD students, must electronically submit their final thesis or dissertation to the Graduate School via the UB/ProQuest UMI submission site. This is a requirement for degree conferral.
An ETD is an electronic version of a thesis or dissertation. ETDs are formatted like paper theses or dissertations (title page, table of contents, page numbering, tables, figures, references, etc.) but are submitted to the Graduate School as a PDF file via our ETD Administrator site.
After your degree is awarded, your thesis/dissertation will be delivered to the UB Libraries and to ProQuest/UMI, where your document will be microfilmed, indexed and stored in ProQuest’s digital dissertations and theses database, the world’s largest recognized repository of graduate student research.
