The below classes may be taken to complete the responsible conduct of research (RCR) requirements for the NIH or NSF. GRAD 5000 is the course offered by the RCR coordinator.

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.

If students or postdocs complete the course somewhere other than CU Boulder, they must submit an RCR Completion Form.  Electronically sign and email it to the RCR Coordinator. Give a copy to your mentor/PI for the NIH- or NSF-funded award, and keep a copy for your records.
