2/10/14 -- Schreyer Honors College detail in snow

A thesis format review is due in the Schreyer Honors College two months before the end of the graduation semester. The final draft of the thesis should be prepared with the honors thesis mentor. The thesis draft should be submitted to the honors academic adviser at least two weeks before the submission deadline. The student should contact his or her honors academic adviser at the beginning of the graduation semester to determine the best timeline for review of the thesis. It is not uncommon for faculty to travel off campus at critical times during this process so the student must plan accordingly. It is inappropriate for a student to provide the thesis to the honors academic adviser the night before the thesis is due in the Schreyer office and expect the faculty member to drop everything to read the thesis. The honors academic adviser is within his or her right not to accept the thesis at this point. The completed thesis, with the research adviser's signature, is due in the Schreyer Honors College a month before the end of the graduation semester. Please, plan accordingly. You will be contacted early the following week by the second faculty reader who may request changes. After the final thesis is approved, and signed, you may submit the hardcopy to the Honors College.
