Years 3+ until Degree Completion

Annual refresher training

Starting in year 3 and beyond, all doctoral students must complete 3 hours of annual refresher training; this can include discussion-based training and online courses beyond the 7 required in years 1 and 2. 

This training can include specific readings identified in consultation with the mentor and online refresher modules. The graduate school offers a large number of resources: http://grad.msu.edu/researchintegrity/resources/

Also counted as training are face-to face meetings with the mentor and group meetings that discuss RCR issues. 

Graduate student must notify MMG Graduate Secretary of completion of this Year 3+ Annual training. Completion of this requirement will be recorded by the department in GradInfo as “Annual” training.
