Make sure that you have submitted an Application for Advancement to Candidacy and Graduate form, or submit one if you have not already.

For assistance with thesis and project formatting you can enroll in our Canvas Course.

A courtesy format review is highly recommended. A courtesy review of a draft can identify and head off issues that might later jeopardize a final thesis or project approval. Theses and projects can be submitted for a courtesy review to cfr@humboldt.edu until Monday, April 29th. 

Submit your final thesis or project to Digital Commons for committee approval. SUBMIT EARLY (at least one business day before the deadline) to allow your committee members time to electronically register their approval before the deadline: Monday, May 13th.

A short inspirational call-to-action film for HSU faculty developed collaboratively by HSU students. Through personal testimony students share some of their challenges, giving us a glimpse into their life. Faculty briefly reflect on changes in our student body and what motivates them to transform their classes and teaching. Together we are encouraged to actively embrace and revision our learning community.
