Electronic Theses & Dissertations (ETDs)

The Colorado State University Libraries and the Graduate School have developed a submission, approval, and archival process for electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) at Colorado State University.

All theses and dissertations are now submitted electronically to ProQuest/UMI. Your work will be available through ProQuest/UMI’s Digital Dissertations & Theses database and the CSU Digital Repository, an open access showcase of campus research and scholarship.

An ETD accessible through the CSU Digital Repository will gain far more exposure and is more likely to be cited. For additional information about the repository, click here.

Before you begin the submission process, please review the procedures for submitting electronic theses or dissertations.

Your thesis or dissertation must be submitted and approved by the published deadline date in order to graduate in a given semester.
