                                  Adopted by Department Faculty
                                    Effective February 15, 2008
In order to fulfill graduation requirements, all Department of Sport Management majors must
meet the following criteria to take SPM 455—Senior Capstone Experience:

Academic Requirements:

   1. Complete all 200- and 300-level SPM core courses as outlined on Student Check Sheet.

   2. Complete a minimum of one (1) 400-level SPM core course.

   3. Attain senior academic standing by completing a minimum of 84 credit hours earned
      toward graduation.

   4. Have no more than 19 credits remaining before graduation.

   5. Complete SPM 455—Senior Capstone during one of the student’s final two semesters.

   Other requirements:

   6. Students must attend a mandatory department Capstone informational meeting in order to
      officially enroll for SPM 455.

   7. Capstone must be taken while a team or league’s sport is in its active season or be
      associated with a sport agency, sport business firm or sport-specific organization.

   8. All Capstone experiences are subject to approval by the faculty advisor, capstone
      coordinator, and department chair.

Obtaining the SPM 455—Senior Capstone Experience is the responsibility of the student; the
Faculty Advisor and the Coordinator of Internships will work with the student to offer
professional guidance whenever needed.

Failure to meet each of the aforementioned criteria will result in the student petitioning to enroll
in SPM455/Senior Capstone at a time other than the final two semesters. The petition will consist
of the student:
a. submitting a written letter of justification detailing the rationale and extenuating
    circumstances necessitating the need to enroll in SPM 455 at a different time.
b. receiving approval from student’s faculty advisor and department chair and/or
    faculty review committee.
