Student Agreement:   “I understand that the expectation for capstone projects is that they are subject to at least one set of revisions.   I understand that a complete draft of my capstone project is due to my adviser one month prior to the deadline for submitting my finished capstone.   This will allow my adviser time to read the draft and recommend any necessary changes, and it will allow me time to make revisions before the final deadline (April 30th for May graduation, November 30th for January graduation)  I understand that if I do not submit my capstone drafts with the advance time described, my graduation may be delayed.   It is not my adviser’s responsibility to accept an unrevised capstone submitted after the deadline for the first draft”
