Thesis Resources

There are many resources available to center majors conducting thesis work, including the following.

Extended Loan Privileges and Carrels - Little Library

CIS seniors can request extended loans at check-out. Books on extended loan are subject to recall. Any books needed for the spring must be renewed before the end of the fall semester.

Carrels and lockers are available by application through the library using their online application form that the library activates. Request by spring semester of your junior year.

Funding for Senior Thesis


Up to $150 in funding is available to you. Request reimbursement as soon as possible, but no later than April 1. Relevant expenses include: lab equipment, supplies, photocopying or conference expenses. Books are generally not covered.

This funding is provided only upon written approval of the director. To seek approval you must submit your request, with appropriate receipts, to the CIS administrative assistant.
