ACURA Student Expectations

To register for an ACURA project, contact faculty members to discuss the project with them. Make sure that you have the qualifications for the specific project and that you can commit to working on the project for its two or three-semester duration.

The faculty mentor will register you for course credit (usually one credit per semester but 2 credits during the semester you write a poster). Grades will be issued for each semester by your faculty mentor.

You may only work on ONE ACURA project per cycle (either 2 or 3 semesters) per year.

You will meet by appointment with your faculty mentor usually at least once per week.

In April of your final semester, you will present a poster and a short, recorded explanation of your project which will be published in the online fair.
