Guidelines for Submitting Student Work
Step 1. Complete the Student Work Cataloging Form (Note: Valid Net ID Required)
Step 2. Complete the Release and Hold Harmless Form (Note: Valid Net ID Required)
Step 3. Gather up digital files and photography into one folder.
A. Drawings/Renderings - Export full layout boards to .pdf at the “high quality print” setting.
B. Model Photos and other Images - Extract key images as individual jpegs:
For the web: Key images should be jpegs saved for web at roughly 1920 x 1080 pixels. If your image is tall, not wide, make it 1080 pixels tall.
For publication: Vector line drawings and graphics should remain vector files (.ai or .eps), and should also be saved to .pdf. Make sure to include all linked files by embedding images and fonts. Photoshop documents should be flattened and saved as .tif files. Photographs (including model photos) and scanned images should also be saved as .tif files, and [if possible] no images should be smaller than 9x12 inches at 300 ppi (2700x3600 pixels).
C. Include animations in Quicktime MPEG-4 (.mov or .mp4) format.
Step 4. Organize your files.
A. Files should be clearly labeled and arranged into titled folders (e.g. “Final Boards,” “Plans,” “Model Photographs,” “Renderings,” “Key Images”).
B. Discs should be labeled with student name, title of thesis, course name, faculty name, and date.
Step 5. Burn files to disc (and deliver to VRC) or upload and share files using Webspace. (Note: please do not share individual files, but instead, share the folder).
If you have any questions about submitting thesis work, or if you need more time, please feel free to call or email the VR Curator.
