Senior Honors Thesis Submission Process - Spring/Summer 2021

Steps to Submit Your Thesis to NSM

  2. Once the thesis is read by the Reader, Ms. Glass will email the student the edited copy from the Reader.
  3. Once corrections are made by the student, the student should email the corrected copy to Ms. Glass.
  4. Ms. Glass will compare the two documents, and if all corrections are made, she will approve the student’s thesis.

NOTE: If the student misses the submission deadline, her/his graduation will be postponed to Spring 2021.
