  • Students responsible to save and upload assignments throughout the program
  • Due by third week of the last course in the program
  • Graded by the advisor per rubric
  • Reported to Registrar's office as part of graduation requirement
  • *important for new faculty because of the advisor's responsibility to grade these assignments for students who started the program before FALL 2013
