Research Credit

In order to register for undergraduate research credit, students must complete college-specific forms. Each college establishes its own deadline, which is usually during the first week of each semester. Forms are submitted to the student's college Dean's office, who will approve and register the student accordingly. Students are not able to course request or register themselves for undergraduate research credit hours. 

Students may conduct 1-3 credit hours of research each semester, noting that this is equivalent to 3-15 hours of actual research.
