What Happens to Your Thesis or Dissertation (ETD)

Information about Access When You Submit an ETD at Washington University in St. Louis

Background on ETDs

Open Scholarship is the university repository and is maintained by the University Libraries. Theses and dissertations are submitted electronically (which is why they are frequently referred to as ETDs):

  • Dissertations – via ProQuest
  • Theses – directly to Open Scholarship 

In general, theses and dissertations since about 2009 have not been available in print. This varies by School, as do the submission requirements.
