​Insect Biology Undergraduate Capstone Registration

To complete your IBIO capstone, you need to register for ENTM 49310 during the semester(s) in which you are working on your project, and register for ENTM 49390 during the semester in which you plan to present your capstone project.

ENTM 49310: At the beginning of the semester, you need to fill out two forms and send to apendle@purdue.edu. These forms are Capstone Agreement and Capstone Project Outline. You and your mentor both need to sign the Capstone Agreement.
