By the end of the Fall semester, you should have your proposal approved (Nature of the Problem, Literature Review, Purpose, Method and Data Analysis) and be working on obtaining IRB approval from Weber State University and/or your healthcare facility. If you have any questions about the IRB approval process, please contact Dr. Kawamura at firstname.lastname@example.org. The WSU IRB application can be found from the following website:
WSU Institutional Review Board (IRB): http://weber.edu/IRB/application_form.html
The goal is to have your proposal and IRB approved by the end of the Fall semester, which should leave you plenty of time to conduct your research and write your results prior to commencement in Spring.
Tuition and fees are due the Friday preceding the start of campus classes. Failure to pay tuition or set-up a payment plan by the deadline may result in a $40 late fee added to the tuition bill. Courses are not dropped for non-payment; students are responsible to drop classes for non-attendance!
Textbooks may be ordered online and shipped through the Weber State University Campus Stores. If ordering textbooks from another source, be sure all materials needed for the class are included (i.e., MSRS 6120: Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research, with Data Set includes a statistical package DVD that is used for class assignments).
In addition to using the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition, the following resources may assist in the completion of the thesis report:

Finalizing the Thesis
If driving onto campus, a parking pass is required for the two days. A temporary parking permit for 'W' parking lots can be obtained from the Information Booth located at the front of campus (in front of the duck pond) between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Temporary permits cost $2 per day. 'W' parking lots are shaded purple on the Ogden Campus Map.
