The Editing Process

Why an editing process?

In order to strengthen the quality of writing in students' Thesis projects, Honors requires that you submit your completed project to an editor for review prior to turning in your final thesis.

What to expect during the process:

  • You should submit your Thesis for editing one week before your turn-in deadline.

    • If you want your project to be reviewed by our Prize Committee and eligible for a prize, you must submit your thesis for the editing process at least a week  prior to the 'prize eligible turn in deadline'. Refer to our timeline and due date pages for more information.

  • Editors will respond to you within a few days with one of the following messages:

    1. Your Thesis is ready to submit
    2. Your Thesis needs some editing before you can submit it (a list will be included)
    3. Your Thesis is not ready for submission. You will need to make an appointment with an editor.

Please be sure that you are simultaneously meeting the deadlines you've agreed upon with your faculty Advisor and Reader so that they receive your final drafts with sufficient time to offer feedback and approval in advance of turn-in.
