Important Dates and Deadlines

Important Dates and Deadlines for the 2019-20 Academic Year

 

  • December 1, 2019: Thesis proposal due. The thesis title, brief prospectus, and the committee chair must be identified (other committee members will only be listed on the final form)
  • March 23, 2020: In consultation with the committee, the student sets the date for a public presentation or oral exam, if required by the department, which must be at least two weeks before graduation.
  • At least five weeks before the public presentation (if required by department) or by April 13, 2020: Committee chair(s) must approve the thesis draft as final enough to circulate to the entire committee. Committee members then have two weeks to read the draft and require revisions. Revisions suggested later than two weeks after committee members receive the draft will be considered advisory only (i.e., not required). Students whose work is deemed by the committee chair(s) to be not ready by this point will likely have their graduation delayed and/or not be able to graduate with Latin Honors.
  • At least three weeks before the public presentation (if required by department) or by April 27, 2020: Student receives committee revision requests and begins to incorporate these.
  • At least one week before the public presentation (if required by department) or by May 11, 2020: Student submits final thesis for approval.
  • At the public presentation (if required by department) or by May 18, 2020: Committee observes and evaluates entire thesis project, submitting workflow-gen form. Students whose work is deemed by the committee to be not ready by this point will likely have their graduation delayed and/or not be able to graduate with Latin Honors.
