End of Program Assessment Manuals for Graduate Studies

 

The EOP Manual is the short-hand name for the End of Program Assessment Manual for Graduate Studies. In the past it has also been referred to as the APUS Thesis Manual and the Capstone Manual. The EOP Manual is used by graduate students and faculty only. There is no undergraduate capstone manual. Students should use the most current version of the EOP Manual.

If you are a student taking a capstone course that began in 2016, you may continue to use the 2016 manual. If you do not have a copy of it, you may request it by emailing ThesisInfo@apus.edu. Be sure to include your name, student ID, and course name and number.

If you have any questions about the policies or information provided in the EOP Manuals, contact GraduateStudies@apus.edu.



There are now two EOP Manuals: 1 for graduate students & 1 for program directors and faculty.
