How to find a position:

Getting course credit for research participation: Some programs in our department require a student earn credit for experiential learning, and pre-approved undergraduate research opportunities can fulfill that requirement. Students should work with their advisers to understand their requirement for experiential learning. Curricula that do not require such experiences can offer elective credit to students for approved work. Credit will not rewarded retroactively for prior work.
