Final Report

Students who have successfully completed their oral defense should make any final corrections to their report. The report should follow the accepted style manual of the subject area and should conform to the highest standards of academic writing in that area.

Students will make four copies the final report on white bond paper, no less than 50% cotton rag content. These copies will be taken to the graduate office and a binding fee paid by the student. Failure to pay the binding fee will result in the essays not being bound and preserved.

The final copies should include the following items, arranged in the following manner:

  • Blank flyleaf—included but not counted in page numbering
  • Title Page
  • Acknowledgements
  • Table of Contents
  • List of tables and figures (if used)
  • Body of Report
  • Bibliography
  • Appendices (if needed)
  • Biographical Sketch of the Author
  • Signature sheets of Committee Members
  • Blank flyleaf

The final copies of the essay must be submitted by the last regular class day of the semester. Incompletes will not be given for honors projects except in the most extreme of situations.
