Thesis Deadline Reminder! Monday, 8/18

If you’re planning to graduate this September (summer 2014 graduation), you must have your hard copy thesis and signed paperwork handed in to the Draper offices by Monday, August 18 at 5pm.  See the link for any thesis-related questions, or email us at draper.program@nyu.edu.

We’ll assign your second reader — either Robin or Robert, depending on your subject matter. A few weeks after the thesis deadline, we’ll email to let you know your thesis has been officially approved by Draper. It will take another three weeks, approximately, for the registrar to process your graduation paperwork; when they do, you’ll see the degree conferred on your online transcript. Eight weeks after that, the registrar sends out diplomas, so please make sure your mailing address is correct in Albert.

Finally, we’ll be celebrating our summer and fall graduates together at a party in January, 2015. That date is TBD, but we’ll announce it on the listserve (and blog and social media), so please stay tuned!
