Submit your Graduate Thesis/Dissertation online

What is eTD@BC?

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

There are two parts to the submission:

  • • A Boston College webpage where you choose whether or not to make your ETD openly accessible through eScholarship@BC.
  • • ProQuest’s UMI ETD Administrator website where you must make your final submission and some additional decisions about your ETD.

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

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

Save paper, save money

Students should not furnish paper copies of their thesis or dissertation to the Boston College Libraries. And, there is no charge for the online submission.


eTD@BC workshops are held each October and February. If you are/were unable to attend, please contact your ETD Administrator to request alternative resources.
