*STUDENTS CAN STILL DO RESEARCH DURING THE SPRING QUARTER*

With the transition to online courses, please note that students will not be required to come to campus for research-related responsibilities.  However, undergraduates may indicate an interest in continuing their research project remotely.  We advise students and faculty mentors to discuss the matter and develop a fair plan for moving forward.  For your assistance, the Undergraduate Research Centers have put together suggestions and resources for how faculty-mentored student research may be conducted off campus during the spring quarter.

Students will be able to remotely enroll in an SRP 99 course.  For departmental 199-like classes, we recommending contacting your individual department.  Thank you again for your patience and please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.  We want you to have a productive spring quarter and to see you succeed in your research pursuits.
