Two copies of the professional project are to be turned in and will be kept by the Grace College and Seminary Morgan Library. Both must be printed on a laser printer and must be on 20 lb. acid-free or acid-neutral white paper, letter size (8 ½ x 11), 25% cotton content. A watermark is expected. The faculty mentor will turn in the project, not the student.
The student must send a PDF copy of their final project to the library as an attachment to an email sent to email@example.com.
The Professional Project must be submitted in this form:
Note: Make sure to include one copy of the signed “Copy Release” with the copies of your professional project that you present shortly before graduation, but don’t include a copy with each of the projects to be bound.
This form MUST be completed, signed, and submitted to the library with your Professional Project.
The form is available as a pdf, which you can print out and complete, or a fillable PDF that you can complete online, save, and print or submit to the library (firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you want bound copies for your own personal use, they will cost $26.00* per copy, plus shipping and handling if you want them mailed to you. They may be submitted on whatever paper you wish. If you do not submit your copy on acid-free, cotton-content paper, be sure to distinguish clearly between the copies that you are submitting. If you mail your copies, please be sure to pack them so that they will not be damaged in transit.
See Mrs. Jodi Nakasone at the Grace College, Morgan Library to discuss what color cover and lettering you want. The phone for the library is 574-372-5100 ext. 6294; email: email@example.com.
