Accessing Your Grad Tools Site
Each UM department, school or college with doctoral degrees administered by Rackham has a Grad Tools site. At least one dissertation support staff member already has access. To determine who that person is or to request access, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you know you already have access, go to your Grad Tools site by logging into CTools.
1. To log into CTools, open http://ctools.umich.edu and then click the Login button in the upper right corner.
2. Type in your UM uniqname and Kerberos password and click Login.
3. Look for a tab along the top of the screen that says "Grad Tools - your department" (e.g., Grad Tools - History). Click on that tab.
4. To see the dissertation checklist and start customizing, click Dissertation Checklist in the left menubar.
