The only hard and fast deadlines are those for declaring candidacy and the date set by the College for completing all honors work; this varies slightly from year to year but is usually during the last week of March.

Honors candidates planning a graduation in August or December should talk with Dr. about deadlines. Broadly speaking, the student should simply plan on shifting the calendar guidelines accordingly to allow similar amounts of time for planning, writing, etc.
