Classroom Training

Classroom Training on Responsible Conduct of Research at the University of Colorado

The following non-credit and credit classes may be taken to complete the responsible conduct of research (RCR) requirements for the NIH or NSF.

Non-Credit Course

A non-credit course to meet the RCR requirement is offered on the Boulder campus in the fall semester. Contact the RCR coordinator after March 15 for course details and/or to enroll in the course.rcr@colorado.edu. In addition, a RCR refresher course is offered occasionally, typically in the spring semester.

Credit Courses

If students take one of the following credit courses, a grade of B or higher must be achieved to satisfy the RCR requirement. Postdocs may audit the course and request a letter of certification from the instructor.

If students or postdocs complete the course somewhere other than CU-Boulder, they must submit a "RCR Completion Form." Sign the original and submit it to the RCR Coordinator (campus mailbox: UCB 26). Give a copy to your mentor/PI for the NIH- or NSF-funded award, and keep a copy for your records.

Note: Courses are not offered each semester, and ability to register or audit is subject to availability and permission of the instructor.
