VERIFY AND UPLOAD

You will be directed through the following steps:

  1. On the first screen, you verify your personal information.
  2. On the second screen, read and check the license information.
  3. On the third screen, add your document and committee information.

    For "Release Options"
    • If you are going to allow your document to have worldwide release right off, leave the check box blank and click "Save and Continue"
    • If you are going to limit access, check the box and select the Embargo (hold) type.
      • TTU-only Hold = available only with eraider access
      • 5-year Hold = 5 years
      • Other Hold = Indefinite (all documents under 5-year Hold embargoes will be released once the hold period expires unless the student contacts the graduate school about an extension)
    • For the fourth screen, browse and upload your PDF file. If you have supplementary files (charts, maps, programs) you may upload them at this time.
      Click "Save and Continue"
    • On the last screen, verify your information and your file upload. If everything is correct, you can click the "Submit" button. Once the submit button is clicked, you will not be able to replace your document until it has been reviewed.
