Capstone Project Process

This process for is students applying in Fall for next Spring OR those applying in Spring for next Fall.

  1. Go through the end-of-the-semester undergraduate advising process (November or April)
    • Confirm with advising that you are eligible for either capstone (MGSC497) or APICS (MGSC495) for the upcoming semester

  2. If advising says you are eligible, register for BADM 399-007
    • This is a placeholder course only

  3. Wait for the Capstone/APICS Project Course (MGSC 497) application link 
    • You will receive this link through the BADM399-007 course blackboard
    • It may be several weeks after the end of the semester before the link is provided
    • Apply as soon as you receive the application link
    • Late applications may not be accepted

  4. Wait for decision (until the week before classes start)

  5. Decision will be communicated to you by the OSC Center in the week before classes start
    • If you are placed in Capstone, you must drop BADM 399-007 and add MGSC 497
    • If you are placed in APICS, you must drop BADM 399-007 and add MGSC 495

 While you must complete one of MGSC 495 or MGSC 497 to complete the OSC program requirements for graduation, you can do both if you wish.

NOTE:  You are encouraged to apply for Capstone (MGSC497) more than once if you did not get placed on your first attempt.
