Frequently Asked Questions

What if I missed the opportunity to take COLG 396 during my junior year?

Starting in Spring 2021, all Thesis scholars will be expected to dedicate three full semesters to their Distinguished Thesis. Registration for 396 during junior year will be required to participate in the program. 

What happens if I start the thesis but am not able to finish it?

If you sign up for the COLG 396 and then decide not to complete the process, the course will be dropped from your transcript after you inform the Undergraduate Research Program. 

If you are enrolled in COLG 398 and decide not to complete the project, you must let the Undergraduate Research Program know before Mod C, if you want a permanent drop from the transcript. 

I'm a double major - can I do two Theses?

No, you can only do one.
