Students use eProjects to edit IQP and MQP project details, submit Completion of Degree Requirement (CDR), and upload project evaluations, and upload files for preservation. Advisors approve project CDRs using eProjects.

Students and advisors will use eProjects 2.0 for project submission and approval beginning with A Term 2020.

  • Submission Process Overview

    The IQP and MQP CDR submission process for both on-campus and project center-based projects:

    1. Project advisors and students can open the submission process for a project in the term that the project is expected to be completed.
    2. Students will enter their project details and upload reports and associated files, and will also complete project evaluations during this step.
    3. Once the project students have entered all required project details and all student evaluations have been completed, then any of the students may submit the project to their advisor for approval.
    4. The advisors will be notified via email and may review the project submission and give grades to students. Once ready, the advisor is able to send the information directly to the Registrar’s Office. If there are issues with the student submission, the advisor may optionally send the project back to the students for modification
    5. The Registrar’s Office will receive the submission and review. They either approve the submission (and record student grades and CDR status), or they can send the project back to advisors if it needs modification or clarification.
    6. Finally, once the Registrar’s Office has completed their review, the project submission information will be sent to the Library to be archived.
  • Starting an IQP/MQP CDR Submission - Students

    1. Login to eProjects. On your dashboard, click on your project.
    2. Click the Submissions tab.
    3. Click the Start a New Submission button. 
    4. Select the term in which to begin the submission and click Start Submission (occasionally submission deadlines overlap, so choosing which term you’re submitted for may be necessary).
    5. Select the students participating in the eCDR submission.
      • All students will be selected by default.
      • Occasionally students may need to submit CDRs in different terms for the same project (e.g. if a student is graduating early), so students are allowed to be deselected if they are not submitting their CDR. Check with your project group to determine who will be submitting their CDR and who will not.
      • Note: if there are ineligible students or the students are not registered for the appropriate terms, they may not be selectable. Issues with student registrations must be fixed through the Registrar’s office before submission can occur.
    6. Click Open Submission to allow all students to begin entering information. Upon    opening submission, the participating students will be notified via email that they can begin entering their details and uploading a report.
