What is the timeline for the Capstone registration process?

Wagner provides information for students to request Capstone registration in late March/early April. Once you have followed these directions, and assuming you have met all of the Capstone prerequisites, you will be registered for Capstone by July 1. Note: In order to check students' Capstone eligibility, program advisors must review each student's academic record.

How do I decide if I should enroll in the Research Capstone? How are topics for the Research Capstone selected?

The Research Capstone is designed for students who know they want to pursue a career in quantitative research, most of whom expect to go on to pursue a Ph.D. Students still work in teams in the Research Capstone section; the primary difference from other Capstone sections is that teams don't have a formal outside client.
