How often will I meet with my advisor?

Although the number of meetings will vary depending on the nature of your project, you and your advisor should work out a mutually satisfactory schedule of appointments at which you can discuss your work in progress. Keep in mind that you should submit your completed thesis to your advisor at least two to three weeks before finals week of the semester in which you are to receive your grade.

Remember, too, that directing your honors theses is not part of your professor’s regular teaching assignment but is extra work that he or she undertakes as a favor to you. Therefore, try to be considerate about sticking to your agreed schedule and consulting with him or her if you need to make changes.
