Culminating Experience

The culminating experience option is only available to graduate students. You may complete the RCL form*** if you have a final project, thesis, or comprehensive exam (culminating experience) remaining for the completion of your degree. You are also permitted to enroll in additional course(s) at SJSU (required or not), concurrently with your project course. An academic/faculty advisor and/or department chair must authorize the culminating experience.

If you are required to complete a two-part project (e.g. project A & project B), you may be authorized to do so by completing the required form each semester.

Please note that for those of you who are enrolled in a project extension( i.e.,1290R), you cannot get authorization to engage in CPT.

***Please note that effective spring 2021, we will transition to a new form for the culminating experience.
