The ETD Process:

The ETD Process:

Q: How long will the review process take?

A: A typical review can take 1-2 weeks from start to finish but it can vary depending on when you submit and how many corrections are needed.

Q: Can I run the Turnitin report or does my Chair need to do it?

A: Students do not have direct access to Turnitin software so your committee Chair will need to help facilitate the running of the report.  Please check with your committee Chair for further details.  How the report is run may be unique to your Chair and/or your department.

Q: How do I filter my Turnitin results and how do I send them electronically?

A: Click here for instructions.

Q: My Turnitin file is too large, how do I send it electronically?

A: Use ETSU's Dropbox:  https://www.etsu.edu/oit/helpdesk/dropbox/

Q: How do I access my IRB approval or exemption letter in IRBManager?

A: Click here for instructions.

Q: Can I submit my thesis or dissertation before the deadline?

A:  Yes!  As long as your thesis or dissertation has been completely approved by your committee, you may submit to the Graduate School for review at any time.

Q:  Do the forms need to be turned in by the initial submission deadline?

A:  The Manuscript Review form and Turnitin report do.  All others can come in after we begin the review process, but you will not receive final approval until all needed forms have been turned in.
