The template meets all requirements of the Graduate School, but its primary purpose is not to enforce a specific appearance for your ETDR. Rather, the template was created to incorporate Word tools and features that will make writing your ETDR easier. The template offers these benefits: Generates your Table of Contents automatically, complete with page numbers. Numbers your figures and tables in sequence and adjusts the numbering if you add or delete figures or tables. Produces your List of Tables and List of Figures. Uses “styles” to create a structured document. Allows global formatting of elements in your document. You are not required to use the template, but doing so will save time and make formatting your ETDR easier. Some features may be new to you, so read these instructions carefully before you begin working with the template.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
