Responsible Academic Conduct Training
An essential part of the graduate experience is to raise the awareness to professional
standards of research ethics, integrity, and safety, and of challenges that student
may face throughout their careers. To supplement the effort provided by our exceptional
Texas Tech faculty, the Graduate School in collaboration with the Office of Research
and Innovation has developed a responsible scholarship training that addresses academic
practices such as data management, intellectual property, management of conflict of
interest, ethical use of humans and animals in research, social responsibility of
research, effective collaboration, and research misconduct.
This training is required for all new and continuing degree-seeking graduate students. Separate training modules are available for different broad disciplines (student self-selects the module).
Starting May 31st, 2023, the Graduate School will no longer accept any of the Responsible Scholarship Courses under the Texas Tech University Citi Page and we will only accept the Responsible Conduct of Research Courses under the Texas Tech University Graduate School Citi Page for fulfilling the Graduate School training requirement.
New students must complete training within their first semester.
Spring 2023 Deadline: Friday, February 24, 2023
Summer/Fall 2023 Deadline: Wednesday, November 1, 2023
** You must access the training using the go.grad.ttu.edu/rcr link and ensure you are affiliated with Texas Tech University Graduate School before completing the courses otherwise we may not receive your results which could result in you receiving a registration hold.
