Thesis hours registration

Important note for students: the thesis registration deadlines pertain to the date your program needs to have your forms submitted to the academic college dean's office. You and your advisor must sign off on the thesis registration form with enough time for the department chair to review the registration request and submit their approval to the dean's office by the date below. It is strongly recommended, therefore, that students and advisors initiate this paperwork at least one week prior to the deadline.
