CHM Undergrads - Research Credit and URS Course Agreement

Information about course agreements.



In Spring 2011, faculty associated with the Psychology department, including Dr. Davidson agreed to begin using a Course Agreement (CA) for all department undergraduate research credit courses. A template course agreement was approved at the May 2011 Psychology faculty meeting. As of the Fall 2011 semester, all undergraduate research credit students (including URS students) are required to fill out Course Agreement at the beginning of each semester. After Richard Davidson countersigns the course agreements, CHM Undergraduate Administration submits them to the Psychology Department. 

Course agreements are retained by Undergraduate Administration for record-keeping. Students will be sent copy of their course agreement (signed by Richard Davidson) and may save it if desired.
