COVID-19-related Updates: All students are permitted to do all of their credits through online studies until further notice -- the 3-credit limit for online studies is suspended. Lab studies are discontinued until further notice. Alternative credit papers remain an option as always. Grade penalties for research participation are suspended for Winter 2022 and instead each credit hour of research participation will result in a 0.5% (half a percentage point) bonus to the student's course grade, up to a maximum of 3.5 percentage points for 7 credits. The policy for Spring 2022 will be updated in March.

Hold on to it, just in case there is an error in our record keeping. For experiments conducted over the web, you may receive an email as proof of your participation instead, or be presented with a page you can print out for your records.
