NSF has a new requirement that all students (undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral) must have had training in Responsible Conduct in Research (RCR) before being supported (i.e., paid) by NSF.

An online RCR certification system has been set up for this purpose. It is found here:

Please note the following requirements as they apply to all VSoE students:

  • all currently NSF-supported students (undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral) must complete the on-line course this spring, as per the Provost's memo;
  • all new incoming PhD students and postdocs must complete the on-line course before being set up on payroll;
  • all undergraduates being put on an NSF support must complete the on-line course before being set up on payroll;
  • PIs who have or hope to have NSF funding are urged to have all their PhD students and postdocs complete the on-line course in any case, to avoid possible future delays in student payroll if students/postdocs are moved from one grant to another.
