Texas A&M University-Kingsville


Effective December 2012, this institution we will be utilizing ProQuest for Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) submissions. Students will no longer be required to submit 5/7 hard copies of these documents on cotton paper to our office.

Two new major changes in format for Thesis and Dissertation Final Documents are:

  1. 1” margins (top-bottom-left-right) and
  2. All page numbers should be placed on the bottom center of each page

Steps to submit final Thesis/Dissertation to ProQuest

Step 1: After completing the theses/dissertations final requirement steps, students will go to the following URL www.etdadmin.com/tamuk to register and create a personal account and follow the instructions to submit the full document.  Students can upload from any computer with internet access or they can come to the College of Graduate Studies Office for guidance on this step.

**If you have questions regarding publishing options, embargo questions..etc., please call the ProQuest Publishing Department at 1-800-521-0600 ext. 77020

Step 2: Final Approval….the College of Graduate Studies will review the uploaded document and submit to ProQuest.


  1. The College of Graduate Studies staff will be happy to guide and help the students with the final submission to ProQuest via www.etdadmin.com/tamuk , if necessary.
  2. The university will no longer bind these documents.  If departments and/or students wish to have a bind copy of these documents, the departments and/or students will cover the binding expenses. In this case departments and/or students have the option to go to the following URL: http://www.thesisondemand.com/  or contact a publishing company.
