Capstone Project/Seminar Paper

 Ordinarily, a seminar paper or capstone project report does not have to be approved by the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.  However, the Graduate Council approved that if the seminar paper or capstone project is deemed to be of appropriate rigor and quality and the graduate program wishes it to be archived in Murphy Library, the student must follow the same rules as they would for a thesis requiring approval from the director of university graduate studies. In such cases, the students must follow Thesis Guidelines for that seminar paper or capstone project report.

In summary, students can use most of the forms provided in the Thesis Guidelines, except the project cover page and project signature page which are slightly different.

Questions should be directed to your advisor or  gradstudies@uwlax.edu.
