A dissertation/thesis is a professional manuscript about accurate and meaningful research conducted by the student. It is submitted to the Graduate School as partial fulfillment of the requirements for a master’s degree. It reflects credit to the student, the Dissertation/Thesis Chair, the Dissertation/Thesis Committee Members, the student’s program, the student’s department and school, the Graduate School, and High Point University. Both the student and the Dissertation/Thesis Chair have responsibility for ensuring absolute quality for all aspects of the written thesis before any copy is submitted to the Graduate School. Students must adhere to all deadlines and processes found in the Thesis, Capstone Project and Dissertation Guide.
