Responsible Conduct of Research Training
The University requires basic Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training for all graduate students. Students may complete this training by attending our on campus orientation program, or by completing the online CITI training course. Students who do not complete the training within their first two semesters will have a hold placed on their account and will not be eligible to enter Research Mode or graduate.
