Beginning Fall 2020:
- Students will be required to upload the Results, Approval, & Degree Recommendation (RAD) form to the Thesis Registration System. This form replaces both the signed Approval Page and the Supervisor Revision Memo.
- In addition, the Declaration of Committee (DoC) page will replace the unsigned Approval Page on page ii of a student’s capstone.
For Summer 2020 submissions:
Doctoral submissions are always designated as a thesis. The term ‘dissertation’ is not officially used for SFU doctoral submissions, as per Graduate General Regulation 1.7.5.
A master’s degree capstone submission is classified as a thesis, project, or extended essay(s) according to Graduate General Regulation 1.7.2.
Students are responsible for entering their graduating course number in the Thesis Registration System, and for entering the correct capstone type on the title page of the document. Consult your department's graduate program assistant to check the course number and capstone type.
