Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training

Responsible Conduct of Research Training is requirement for all graduate students at Michigan State University and each department has their own rules pertaining to RCR Training.

It is suggested the students input their hours as they do them,  all hours must for the year must be submitted by August 15th in order for them to be counted towards the academic year.
