Ideally, this form should be submitted at least three semesters before you intend to graduate. Fill in your proposed thesis topic, attach a one-page general description of the work to be done, and have your thesis chair respond to the follow up email confirming they are committed to serving as your thesis mentor. If you decide to change topic, thesis mentor, or date of graduation, you can simply complete a new form. Your thesis declaration form will be either approved or recommended for amendment by the honors college dean or associate dean; this decision will be communicated to you and your thesis chair via WMU email.
For detailed information about completing your thesis project, please read the thesis handbook carefully, or contact your honors college academic advisor.
Please contact Jennifer Townsend with any questions or supplemental forms or documents.
