How do you start?
Undergraduate Research may be a valuable learning opportunity for students. Although placement is competitive and not guaranteed, undergraduate students seeking research opportunities should:
If credit is an important aspect of your participation as a student researcher, you should discuss this with your faculty member. She/he will determine the requirements to obtain credit if feasible.
If you are seeking ExEL units, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research for assistance once you have secured a research position. You may also download the ExEL Student Research packet for more information.
Please note that research placement is not guaranteed. It depends on many variables such as your availability, your responsiveness, your experience, your commitment level, and your grades.
