NOTE: For Fall 2021, in-person research will be allowed if your IRB protocol is properly amended with COVID safety precautions. The IRB will determine whether your research is allowed to transition to an in-person mode. You will need to upload documentation of IRB approval when you activate your study.
The Psychology Course Credit Participant Pool gives students who are taking particular Psychology courses the opportunity to participate in experiments outside of the classroom. Participating in the Course Credit Pool is meant to be an educational experience during which students will learn about how psychological research is conducted. All studies are in accordance with the ethical procedures established by the University Institutional Review Board (IRB) and the Psychology Department's Human Subjects Committee (HSC).
The Psychology Department’s Course Credit Participant Pool is a participant recruitment system that department members can use to obtain participants for their research. Psychology faculty/postdocs, currently enrolled Psychology graduate students, and undergraduate students in the Psychology Honors Program are eligible to use the Psychology Department’s Course Credit Pool. Special faculty with zero-time appointment in the Department of Psychology may use the Credit Pool if they are collaborating with a Psychology graduate student/faculty.
Note: Research projects of PSYC290/494 or PSYC492 (Capstone) students are not eligible. Thesis/Dissertation projects of students from a different department are not eligible. Research projects of faculty/postdocs from a different department are not eligible. Affiliated faculty are not eligible unless they have a zero-time appointment with the Psychology Department.
