Students planning to work on research projects which involve human subject participation or animals are required to obtain IRB or IACUC approval prior to the solicitation of human subjects, purchase of animals, and the collection of data. Students working on federally funded research projects will need to complete training in the Responsible Conduct of Research.

See the Community Standards Manual for information on the academic honesty policy for undergraduates.

Consult the Graduate Bulletin for academic honesty and ethical behavior policies for graduate students.
