Capstone Policy

Effective Jan. 1, 2019, students enrolled in the University's bachelor's degree programs will need to complete a minimum of 100 credits in the program before registering for a Capstone course.

In addition, students wishing to register for a capstone course must have a GPA of 2.0 or higher before they can obtain permission to register. Students are also required to complete their Capstone course through Thomas Edison State University. The policy is designed to ensure that students are appropriately prepared to be successful in their Capstone endeavors.

As always, the University encourages students to schedule an advising appointment to discuss program requirements and course options. Students may call (609) 292-2803, Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (ET) or email at any time.


Capstone Transfer Policy

Effective July 1, 2016, the undergraduate Capstone course must be taken at Thomas Edison State University. The Capstone course can no longer be transferred from another institution. Students who have an approved Capstone equivalent course in their official University program plan as of June 10, 2016, or are enrolled in a Capstone equivalent course as of June 10, 2016, may have that course applied to their degree; it will be accepted as fulfilling the Capstone requirement.
