Thesis-Only options are available for special students, and these need to be discussed on a case by case basis with the Academic Committee. The students admitted into the Thesis-Only tracks usually have to demonstrate long-standing service to the Hindu community and prior knowledge of Hindu concepts and ideas that they have acquired from other sources, usually Ashrams, Gurus and Acharyas of various Sampradayas. They will be required to demonstrate such prior knowledge by passing a comprehensive exam.
