Please complete this form in cooperation with the Primary Research Advisor who will supervise the student's Senior Honors Thesis. The student should complete this form at the beginning of their project and submit it to Joshua Gallegos, an Academic Advisor for Biology. Please include a copy of your LoboTrax degree audit. Joshua will provide general advice and will administer the student's application to the point of ensuring that the student receives honors after completing all the requirements. Prospective honors students will be allowed to register for Biology 400, Senior Honors Thesis, only after (1) their applications have been processed, and (2) their faculty advisors have been given permission by Joshua to admit the student to the Honors Program.
Upon satisfactory completion of the requirements for Biology Honors, the Department of Biology will notify the Office of Registrar of the level (cum laude, magna cum laude or summa cum laude) of honors to be awarded. The level is based largely on the quality of the thesis and associated academic productivity, and in some cases exceeds the University-level of honors, which is based on the GPA.
