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.
