Thesis Review Process
These procedures and guidelines are effective as of Spring 2006:
- There are four thesis submission cycles: fall, winter, spring, summer.
- Each cycle has a 4-week window. Students are allowed to submit prior to the submission period, but cannot submit after the deadline. Theses will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. There will be no appeals and no exceptions.
- The Thesis Office is committed to the goal of returning theses within four weeks.
- Students can submit their theses on standard #20 copy paper rather than Southwestern Bond. Departments that require copies of theses are encouraged to accept #20 copy paper in lieu of bond paper.
- Theses must be professional and in acceptable order upon initial submission to the Thesis Office. Students and faculty thesis committee members must take responsibility for the quality of the thesis submission.
- Theses that are returned with minor errors for resubmission in the same cycle do not go to the end of the queue; they will be returned in one to two weeks. For these minor errors, students will have two opportunities to complete all corrections throughout the manuscript. If errors are found after the second resubmission, the thesis must be submitted in a future cycle.
- Theses with a significant number of errors of substance (language usage, spelling, problems with citations, problems with usage of the stipulated style sheet) will be returned for submission in a future cycle. They will not be accepted as resubmits in the same cycle.
- The Thesis Office will provide preliminary consults to students as time permits before the thesis deadline for each cycle. The Thesis Office will not format theses for students.
- The Thesis Office will no longer individually tag pages for errors. Instead, a corrections list will be prepared by the Thesis Reviewer. Students must apply all corrections noted on the corrections lists throughout the thesis. The Thesis Office can no longer provide every student with counseling for every correction listed. Instead, students may contact the Thesis Office for clarification of corrections noted. It is the final responsibility of the student and the faculty thesis chair to ensure that the thesis is free of errors.
