Honors Thesis Deadlines

The final version of a thesis, ready for binding, may be submitted to the department at any time before May 15 for spring graduation, January 15 for winter graduation. Your home college has to review your final semester's grades before agreeing that you meet the requirements for honors, and the notation on your permanent record is not made until after graduation. However, if your research director wishes to nominate your thesis for a Jane B. Hart Award, he or she must receive a substantially complete version by May 1 (or the following Monday if May 1 is on a weekend). This is true whether you are graduating in January or May, since the awards committee considers theses from the entire year.
