A project or thesis is finished when every committee member says that it is finished, and even the MAIS director can request further revision. Students are encouraged to work well ahead and keep the lines of communication open.
Project/thesis submission deadline for the graduating term is the UDTS deadline found at University Dissertation & Thesis Services. Failure to meet this deadline will result in additional MAIS 798/799 credits in a following semester.
For students writing a thesis, you will work on the timetable established by University Dissertation & Thesis Services and the CHSS dean's office in order to get the requisite signatures and file the thesis in time to graduate.
Students who are preparing to graduate should consult the CHSS website for the latest Graduation Checklist, which will help to ensure you meet all of the University and Registrar requirements for degree conferral.
Please note, concentration heads do not sign off on theses, though students should submit the thesis to their concentration head if the concentration head is not already on the student's committee.
Projects are not handled by University Dissertation & Thesis Services and do not require the dean's signature. They do, however, require the concentration head's signature. Final submission will be to the Interdisciplinary Studies program.
