Submitting your Graduate Thesis/Dissertation

What is eTD@BC?

eTD@BC is the system that graduate students at Boston College use to submit their theses and dissertations.

Before beginning your submission, please read through the instructions, presented as follows:

  1. Decide key choices
  2. Prepare your digital files
  3. Submit your thesis or dissertation

At the end of these instructions, you will be directed to ProQuest's ETD Administrator website where you must make your submission and decisions about your ETD.

To help in you walk through this process, we have created a student ETD checklist. In order to use it, simply go to the link, click File → Make a copy... and begin editing your personal copy.


eTD@BC workshops are held each October and February. The Fall 2018 workshop will be on Thursday, October 11 at 3:00 PM in O’Neill Library, Rm. 307. If you are/were unable to attend, please review the information on this website and in the attached handout. For additional questions, please contact your ETD Administrator.
