Yes! Here’s how:

First, search for your graduate work in ProQuest Dissertation Express.

If you find it, ProQuest has it. You do not need to order it online. You must call ProQuest to receive your complimentary author PDF.

If your graduate work is NOT listed in ProQuest Dissertation Express, please contact the UMKC Interlibrary Loan department at to let us know. We have some alternative options to be able to provide you a PDF, and we will work with you on the most expedient option.
