A course is scheduled to end on Septhember 16.
It doesn't contain any peer-reviewed assignments, only 4 graded tests.
I will be able to finish it in August.
It is the last course of a specialization (the last one before a capstone).
The capstone is scheduled to start on September 2.
On the page of the capstone I get following information:
"You can only access this Capstone after completing the courses in the Specialization".
Will I be able to get access on September 2?
Or will I have to wait for a certificate?
Will I get it after completion of graded tasks or only after the end of the session on September 16?
There are some deadlines in the first weeks of the capstone so I will not be able to start in the middle of the month.
I would be very grateful for help. Thank you in advance.

If the post is left and some newbies get here and are interested, the answer is following:
- You can have access to a capstone only having CERTIFICATES for all courses in a specialization.
- To get a certificate you need to pass all required assignments in a course, or meet a course passing threshold for a cumulative graded course. If you do it in a few days (for example, if there aren't any peer-reviewed assignments), you will get a certificate at once. No matter when a session ends.
- If you are late with certificates for your capstone for a few days and the next session of the capstone is not coming soon, you can try to ask support tearfully and maybe they will enroll you in the current session. But do not overuse this.
