SARI - Scholastic and Research Integrity
- During the first year of enrollment, graduate students will be required to complete an online RCR training program provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). The Office for Research Protections (ORP) will provide the link to this training via the SARI Resource Portal on the ORP website (www.research.psu.edu/orp).
- Graduate students will also be required to engage in an additional 5 hours of discussion-based RCR education prior to degree completion. These discussions will encompass both universal and discipline-specific material. (ENT 597A Critical Thinking and Professional Development - Offered Spring Semesters will fulfill the requirement.)
Core Course Waivers
Determination of waiver will be based on a written exam equivalent to the final exam and will be administered by the instructor(s) of the course(s) involved. In cases where waivers are granted, doctoral students will be held accountable for the knowledge at the time of the candidacy and comprehensive exams.
