committee may either approve and sign your Prospectus, or suggest revisions to
    strengthen it. If revisions are suggested, rewrite and re-circulate the revised
    document to each of your three committee members for their approval. Once
    approved, the Prospectus must be signed by each member of the faculty committee
    and filed with the Registrar, who will verify that it is complete and meets current
    academic regulations as set forth by the Faculty.
    Your faculty committee will evaluate the Prospectus according to these criteria:
    o Is it technically well-written (grammar, spelling, organization)?
    o Is it conceptually well-written (articulation of program clear, goals achievable,

         means reasonable)?
    o Is the Chronology consistent with the Narrative?
    o Is the plan consistent with the educational priorities of the College?
    o Are the activities outside the classroom, in BSS 690 Blocks or other experiences,

         consistent with the Narrative and the Chronology?
6. File your Prospectus with the Registrar any time after October 1 of your sophomore

    year. If it is complete and found to conform to current academic regulations, the
    Registrar will notify you of its approval. The Prospectus will become part of your
    permanent file at the College.
7. You must obtain the written permission of your faculty committee for any significant
    changes from the Prospectus before effecting such changes. If in doubt as to whether
    the changes are significant, consult your primary advisor or the Registrar. Further
    details can be found in the BSS Preparation and Submission Checklist on the
    Registrar’s website-
8. In the fall of the student's senior year, the Registrar will review each candidate's
    B.S.S. program to determine whether the student has registered for the same or
    similar courses as are listed on the Chronology of Courses included in the student's
    Prospectus. (This review occurs during the senior conference, described in the
    Catalogue section on Degree Programs.) A student who has made significant
    deviations from the B.S.S. Prospectus without prior written approval of the faculty
    committee will not be awarded the B.S.S. degree.
