Spring/Fall 2020 Seniors

Friday, October 30, 2020 - 12 noon
Submit your first draft to the HSS Thesis Moodle page before 12 noon. Make sure your draft is uploaded as a PDF. *Please Note: If your adviser has requested a separate electronic or printed copy of your draft, you must still upload to the Moodle before 12noon in order to meet the division deadline.

After you submit your draft to the Moodle, your Adviser will complete the First Draft Certification Form. (Please see the HSS checklist and important information attached – read them carefully.) If your adviser cannot check all the ‘yes’ boxes on the First Draft Certification Form, or judges the thesis to be of failing quality on other grounds, then you have missed the first draft deadline. If you miss the HSS Divisional First Draft deadline, you cannot be recommended by the Division for graduation until the following semester.

Friday, December 4, 2020 by 3:00pm - Registrar Deadline
Four (4) printed copies of your thesis with your adviser’s signature on a separate piece of paper, are due in the Registrar’s Office. Once the Registrar has recorded that you met the deadline, you will immediately distribute these four copies to your Orals committee members.
