In some cases, however, the faculty advisor may decide to give a student a grade for 499Y at the end of the semester in which it was taken. The Honors Coordinator turns in all grades through SPIRE. Faculty advisors need to send their grades to Laurie Dove, the Undergraduate Secretary, so that they can be sent over to the Honors Coordinator for entry onto SPIRE. When 499T is completed, the faculty advisor will need to submit a change of grade form for 499Y to the Undergraduate Secretary in Tobin 401. This does not need to be signed by the Honors Coordinator.You choose the topic for the Undergraduate Thesis inconsultation with a thesis advisor.
