When you have completed all revisions as approved by your thesis committee, bring two or more copies of your thesis (two are required, but you may wish additional copies for yourself, committee members or family) to the Honors Office. Honors staff will verify that the copies meet the guidelines for binding specified by the Chester Fritz Library and then sign the Library Binding Form which you will bring, together with the copies of your thesis, to the Chester Fritz Library Periodicals Dept. The Honors Office will then inform the Registrar that you have completed your thesis requirements and fulfilled all thesis requirements for graduating as a Scholar in the Honors Program or with Senior Honors. At the same time that you get the Library Binding Form from the Honors Office, the Office will ask you to complete a Thesis Assessment Form that evaluates your experience in participating in the thesis program and, if you are a full member of the Honors Program, an Alumni Assessment Form evaluating your overall Honors experience. With this final step, you are done! Here is the link for the binding form. http://und.edu/honors-program/_files/docs/bindingform2010.pdf And these are the SampleThesis Guidelines as found on: http://und.edu/honors-program/thesisforms.cfm
PHYSICAL FORMAT FOR HONORS THESES
Theses should be printed on good quality white printing paper, 8 1/2 x 11, available at the University Bookstore. Minimum margins of 1 1/2" on the left and 1" on the other three sides should be left. Title page information should be centered on the page with a 3-4 inch margin from the top of the page. Use the following wording:
(Title) by (Author) A Thesis Submitted to the University of North Dakota Honors Program Committee In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements For Graduation With Senior Departmental Honors* Grand Forks, North Dakota (Date)
*Honors Program students should substitute the words "As a Scholar in the Honors Program" in place of "With Senior Departmental Honors."
The bibliographical style and format should be that in most general use in the field of study, as advised by the student's committee (e.g., APA, Turabian's Manual for Writers of Dissertations, MLA Style Sheet, etc.). Consistency of style throughout is essential. Typing should be double-spaced. While laser copies are not required, the image should be sharp and clear for photocopying. Charts, graphs, illustrations, etc., should be on regular bond paper or on as high-grade paper as can be used for the particular purpose. The original work should be used for the first copy, unless its physical format or condition preclude binding (e.g., tracing on vellum), then it should be copied on bond paper. Before the submission of the thesis to the Library, it is the student's responsibility to make at least two copies of the final paper, and the student may want to make others (for himself or herself, the department, etc.). The student must bear the costs of reproduction and the binding of the copies. The Library is willing to bind further copies, at cost. One copy must be deposited with the Periodicals Office, basement level of the Chester Fritz Library, together with an instruction form from the Honors Program Office and the required fees for binding. Copies of previous Honors theses can be inspected in Chester Fritz Library (which has a full non-circulating set) and the Honors Program Library (which has a non-circulating set).
Hope all this information helps you. If not, please stop in the office. You may print these in the Honors Computer Lab/Office and is best to print one for me to look at before printing the rest. If you prefer different paper for some reason, bring that with you and use it in our printer.
Hope to see you soon! Congratulations on the completion of your Thesis and time here at Honors. We will miss you!
