ENROLLING IN YOUR SENIOR THESIS/ESSAY
To enroll in a senior thesis or honors essay tutorial, you must submit a tutorial enrollment request through the Drop/Add system. Click on the subject area of your senior thesis/honors essay tutorial. If you are pursuing honors in General Scholarship, select the department/program of your thesis advisor.
Next, click on the Tutorial link. Click on Request Tutorial next to the appropriate tutorial (409 in the fall and 410 in the spring for theses; 403 in the fall or 404 in the spring for honors essays). Complete the tutorial form and submit it.Once your thesis advisor, the Chair of the department (or both Chairs, if you are pursuing honors in more than one department), and your faculty advisor have approved the tutorial, you will be enrolled in the course.
If you are pursuing honors in General Scholarship, you will have the opportunity to note this on the electronic form when you make your tutorial request.
If you are pursuing honors in more than one department, you will enroll in the subject area of one of the departments that you are writing for. You can enroll in one subject for 409 and the other for 410 or in only one subject for both 409 & 410. You should discuss this with both major departments before making a selection. You will be able to indicate that you are pursuing honors in more than one department on the electronic tutorial form.
If you have multiple thesis advisors, one thesis advisor can serve as the official advisor on record for the entire year or one thesis advisor can be the instructor of record for the fall semester and the other thesis advisor can be the instructor of record for the second semester. Because this is up to the department, please check with your major department(s) to see what their preference is prior to enrolling in the tutorial. In rare cases, a department will request that two instructors be listed as the official advisors on record for each tutorial. If that is the case, the department should contact Susan Krajewski for additional instructions.
Please refer to the Tutorial Manual for additional information.
