About Our Fees
All students who complete the ETD submission process are charged an ETD processing fee. This fee covers the workshops, help sessions, and staff time reviewing each ETD.
Fees will be assessed after the ETD has been approved (usually at the end of the semester) and will appear in OASIS as a Graduate Manuscript Processing Fee (GMPF). Final transcripts and/or the diploma will
not be released until all fees are paid.
Note: Fees will be assessed only to students who have completed the entire submission process.
Save Money on the ETD Process
- ETDs submitted 2+ weeks prior to the deadline receive a discount.
- Attending the ETD workshop and taking care to fulfill the requirements improves an ETD's chances of approval with minimal edits.
- Submissions that require more than 20 comments or more than 2 reviews will accrue an additional processing fee - because of the additional time needed to review the ETD.
