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. 

Summer/Fall 2024 Deadline (For newly admitted students): Friday, November 1, 2024
