Responsible Conduct of Research Requirements

In 2017-18, all graduate students must complete Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training as a graduation requirement. Each graduate program has selected a specific course or online module to best match the program curricula.

Below is a chart of RCR Requirements by program. Successful completion of Epigeum courses will be communicated to the Registrar's Office and notated on your transcript within 2-3 weeks. Please read your program's requirements carefully. If your program requires an Epigeum module, please proceed by clicking here.

Please Note: If you are going to be conducting human subjects research, the Human Research Review Committee (HRRC) requires all protocol personnel to complete Human Subjects Protection training. Before submitting your protocol, please check to make sure you have completed the necessary training: http://www.gvsu.edu/hrrc/training-requirements-74.htm
