Credit for Thesis

  > Credit for the Thesis

Students who are working on thesis (including students who are registered in absentia) are expected to comply with the enrollment requirements as set forth in the section entitled Course Load . Advice or assistance from a member of the faculty in the preparation of the thesis should not be expected unless the student is officially enrolled.

As the student develops their thesis, the phrase “Thesis in progress” is shown without a grade on the student’s permanent record for each registration period until the semester or term in which it is graded. However, a grading system of S (satisfactory), U (unsatisfactory), or I (incomplete) may be elected by a department. Such grades in the thesis courses are not considered in computing a student’s grade point average. A final grade of B or better is required on the completed thesis. A grade of C indicates that the thesis is not acceptable.

The college office will send a copy of the Certification of Submission of thesis form (showing submission of the thesis to the college office) to the student’s department chair. The chair then reports the thesis grade to the Office of the University Registrar.

A maximum of 6 semester hours of Master’s Thesis credit may be applied to the requirements for a Master’s degree.
