How to Complete and Submit the
Thesis Adviser Selection and Agreement Form
General notes:
o Your thesis adviser must be a permanent member of the faculty, have the title assistant
professor, associate professor, or professor, and have a doctoral degree (unless the master’s
degree is the terminal degree in your discipline).
o Visiting or adjunct faculty, instructors or lecturers may not serve as primary thesis advisers
(i.e. those who assign the grade for your thesis hours). In some circumstances, such
individuals may be approved by the Honors College to serve alongside a member of the
permanent faculty as co-advisers. Students seeking permission for this arrangement should
send a memo to the dean with a detailed explanation of the rationale for the request.
o Should you wish to have an adviser outside of your major, you must first obtain approval
from the dean of the Honors College. Fill out this form, send it to your proposed adviser and
submit the completed form to the dean.
o After completing the required fields (electronic completion required), collect appropriate
signatures. Note that electronic signatures are not acceptable. Submit the completed form by
the deadline stated in your HON 300 syllabus.
o Submission is not complete until you have followed all steps.
