Smiling doctoral students in a laboratory

Doctoral students are required to complete RCR training if they meet one or both of the following criteria:

The RCR Academic Policy for Doctoral Students requires all doctoral students to complete two forms of RCR training.

The RCR Compliance Policy requires doctoral students funded by a covered NSF, NIH, or other applicable project to complete RCR training. The RCR compliance training requirements for doctoral students are the same as those included in the RCR Academic Policy for Doctoral Students.

Applicable NSF or NIH-funded doctoral students who have a catalog year prior to 2011-12 should contact the RCR Program if they need to discuss other options for satisfying the in-person compliance training requirement.
