Financial Aid assistance -- Financial assistance can be secured from the Office of Financial Aid for expenses you have incurred in writing your thesis or in generating special papers or lab reports connected with Honors at graduation. You are entitled to a maximum of $125 for such items as printing, copying, binding and other related research expenses. To qualify for this assistance, you must submit an itemized bill to the faculty member with whom you are working so that he or she may approve the total charge. Then bring your bill to the Office of Financial Aid before graduation so that proper arrangements can be made with the Controller's Office for reimbursement directly to you.

Questions -- If you have questions concerning thesis submission deadlines, please contact your thesis advisor or the Dean's Office. Questions regarding the physical preparation of your thesis can be directed to Sylvia Kennick Brown, College Archivist (tel: x2596).
