Graduate students: Nov. 22 is the deadline for submitting theses, dissertations and reports
Friday, Nov. 22, at 5 p.m. is the deadline for graduate students to submit their electronic theses, dissertations or reports -- or ETDRs -- to the K-State Research Exchange if they plan to graduate this semester. See the Graduate School's graduation deadlines for details.
Graduate students can get help formatting their Microsoft Word and LaTeX documents to meet Graduate School requirements by contacting the IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-7722 to schedule an appointment with consultants Betsy Edwards and Marty Courtois.
Visit the ETDR website to access many Word resources and step-by-step solutions. Select the category "Using Word to write your ETDR" and then select the Word version you're using. The site includes Word 2003 for Windows through Word 2013; and Word 2004 for Macs through Word 2011.
For each version of Word on the site, the topics cover how to:
- Troubleshoot a variety of common Word issues, such as wrong page numbering; copying and pasting content; adding figure and table captions; and working with automated lists like the Table of Contents and List of Figures
- Use, create and modify Word styles
- Make PDF conversions
- Get tips and shortcuts for working with Word
