 Important Notes

1 The Honors Thesis must be submitted in HARD COPY to the Honors Program office with a signed thesis approval form.

2 After the required submission of a hard copy, we highly recommend that you submit your thesis to Open Commons, where your work will have a permanent presence on the internet.

3 You will be asked to complete a Honors Senior Survey to give us feedback about your experience. Later we will ask you about your post-graduation plans.

4 Routine extensions may be allowed with approval of your Honors advisor and thesis supervisor. No email to Honors is required unless requesting a further extension.

5 A further thesis extension (for a date prior to the degree deadline) may be allowed by first getting approval from your Honors advisor and thesis supervisor and then sending a request to honors@uconn.edu. Email should state that you have talked to your advisor and supervisor. It is recommended that you aim for a date earlier than the degree deadline to allow for time for getting signatures, posting grades, and other processing.

6 Final degree deadline – completion by noon. FIRM DEADLINE SET BY DEGREE AUDITING. Students must complete or decide to delay graduation by this time.
