Requirements and Schedule

All students must complete a senior capstone declaration form by the third week of the semester before they plan to graduate; the form indicates how the senior capstone requirement will be fulfilled. The declaration forms are available through the links below as well as through the department chair.

Schedule for Proposal Reviews and Revisions

Please refer to the information below for important deadlines associated with the senior capstone requirement. The deadlines are firm, so please do not wait until the last minute; late submissions cannot be accepted. If you do not abide by the deadlines stated, you cannot register in an individual or collaborative project for the spring, which can delay your graduation date. Do not let this happen to you!
