**Please note some departments require a bound copy as well and additional personal copies can be requested at this time. You should submit signed approval pages based on how many copies you are having bound.
Once the Graduate Dean has either read and approved, or read, requested revisions, and approved the corrections, you will need to contact the Library by phone before printing the final manuscripts you are having bound. Final manuscripts should be printed on 22-24 pound bond paper with a minimum of 100% cotton content (a watermark on each page will clearly reveal the cotton content when held up to the light) and delivered to the University Library (along with approval pages). The following Thesis Bindery Guidelines should be reviewed prior to submitting to the library.
Effective June 28, 2012: The approval pages containing original board member signatures MUST follow the formatting noted in the Thesis Guide as it pertains to the title for the current Dean of Graduate Studies. Submissions that do not adhere to the current thesis guide format will be returned for correction.
**EFFECTIVE August 1, 2016, the information required on the approval page under the signature line for the Dean of Graduate Studies has changed. Please refer to the Master's Thesis Guidelines manual noted under Thesis Info for the updated information.

Effective Fall 2014 Semester
Enrollment Policy Approved through the summer CAPC pilot process. Effective for one year. (approved August 8, 2014) Students have a maximum of 6 years for degree completion. During that time students are expected to maintain continuous enrollment during fall and spring semesters. Failure to maintain continuous enrollment may affect degree completion due to course availability. Before a semester of non-enrollment, students are encouraged to contact their graduate coordinator, graduate studies, financial aid office (if applicable), and international programs (if applicable) to discuss implications of non-enrollment. A maximum of two semesters of non-enrollment are permitted before a student must enroll or request a leave of absence. Students who fail to re-enroll or request a leave of absence are subject to readmission.
NG grades will be given when a student fails to complete course requirements by the end of a semester and a time extension is granted by the professor. Students must complete course requirements as stipulated by the professor and not later than the end of the 14th week of the subsequent semester, or the NG grade will convert to an F at the end of the semester. Unless a professor indicates a deadline when assigning a NG, graduate students have until the 14th week of the subsequent to complete course requirements. Please note, this means NG grade changes are due to the Registrar's office at the conclusion of the 15th week.
IP grades indicate work in progress and will be used only for protected courses (theses, practicums, internships, recitals, and research reports). Students must complete course requirements as stipulated by the professor and not later than the end of the 14th week of the second subsequent semester, or the IP grade will convert to an F. An IP grade may not be replaced with an NG. If an NG or IP transitions to an F, a dismissal will be issued to the student.
Please refer to the current policy on F grades. All graduate academic policies can be found in the Graduate Catalog.
