GrC462 - Senior Project
When to apply: It is strongly recommended that you register for your senior project in your 4th year during any quarter, if possible register during fall or winter, regardless whether or not you have satisfied the pre-req of GWR and STAT 217.
Pre-reqs: GWR and STAT 217 are prerequisites for Senior project (462). If you can satisfy these prerequisites before you register for senior project that is ideal. We recommend you complete GWR and STAT 217 during your 3rd year so that you can confidently work on your senior project and graduation.
Pre-req "waivers": we understand scheduling could be challenging in your 4th year and working on your senior project during your last quarter could make your scheduling even more challenging. So we allow all students in their 4th year to register for their senior project regardless satisfying GWR and STAT 217.
