Before you start your ETD journey, make sure to know your requirements and contact in your school! The student services staff for each school are the keepers of school-specific requirements for your ETD and graduation. They offer school-specific workshops and trainings for students, and can advise you on issues related to your ETD throughout the whole process. At the end, they are the ones who will review and approve your ETD. Look below for any requirements pages and the contact person for your school.
