Capstone Scholars Fellows

The Capstone Fellows Program recognizes Capstone Scholars who go above and beyond the minimum expectation with a high honor and special designation on their transcript. Points are awarded for active engagement in our community. A student's point total becomes important in pursuit of Capstone Fellows status. Below are the many ways your Capstone and USC involvement can help you earn Fellows status.

To check your points:
1. Log into Blackboard
2. On the left hand side, look under "Tools"
3. Click on the "My Grades"
4. Click on the "Capstone Scholars Fall 20xx"
Each completed "Expectation" will be marked with a check when the student has fulfilled it. The next several rows down are the point totals for each pillar (Academic, Social, Service and Leadership) as well as the Fall 2013 total and the Grand Total. Please keep in mind that there is delay in updating the points as data entry is time consuming.

You are responsible for tracking your involvement as well. If you feel that your point totals are incorrect, please send a list of events attended to Assistant Principal Erin Wilson at erin.wilson@sc.edu for verification.
