Geosciences Capstone Experience Deadlines and Guidelines

Before the end of the fall of your junior year, talk to your advisor as well as other faculty about how you want to complete the capstone experience for your major track.  You can see the various capstone options for each major track here.  The capstone must be completed during your senior year (ie, after May of your junior year). You must do at least one capstone, but you can do more than one. Regardless of how you complete your capstone experience, you will share your results with the department through our Lunch and Learn Seminar Series.  

Regardless of how you complete your capstone experience, they are not regular courses though they do get credit and a grade.  As such you cannot preregister for them, you simply must complete the Registrar’s “Special Course Options Permission Form” by the end of Add/Drop.  You can access the form here.
