New Portal for Submitting Student Projects

Purchase College is moving to a new system for submitting student projects (senior projects, senior capstones, and master’s theses): the Student Project Portal! Student projects will no longer be submitted in Moodle, as of December 2020. Instructions, trainings, and more info below!

As of December 2020 all student projects (including senior projects, senior capstones, and master’s theses) will be submitted via the Student Project Portal, a new submission system within MyHeliotrope. The process will no longer take place in Moodle, starting with projects submitted for the December 2020 deadlines.

Current Seniors & Graduate Students: You will only be able to start a submission in the Student Project Portal when you are enrolled in: Senior Project II, Senior Capstone, or Master’s Thesis credit hours. If you aren’t enrolled in those courses yet you will not be able to start a submission, and no current action is needed!

Student Project Guide:
This guide provides step-by-step instructions, with screenshots, for both students and readers. Please consult it as you use the new system. The new system is a joint venture of the Library and CTS. The TLTC is no longer involved in the student project submission process– please refer all questions to the Library, the Registrar, or CTS, as outlined in the guide.

The Library will offer open training sessions on Zoom for students and faculty/staff next week, where we will go over the guide and walk through the new system. You can also always contact your subject librarian or the library’s Ask a Librarian services for help with the new system.
